Current Administrative Problems in Reading. Highlights of the 1967 Pre-Convention Institutes.
Carlson, Thorsten R.
Five papers concerning administrative problems in reading discuss administrative innovation, reading research, inservice education, and program funding. Forces promoting innovation include the federal government, industry, and educational research, the force which is seen as the basis for progress in education. Learning resource centers, administrative recognition of teaching success, and in-class research are among the eight recommendations included for inservice education. Team enrollment, for both first-grade teacher and school principal, in college reading courses is also emphasized as a means of providing inservice opportunities for both to develop and implement improved reading programs. ESEA/Title I, III, and IV and NDEA/Title XI grants are noted as major sources of program funding, and current programs are described. (RT)
