Function and Future: The Public Campus Laboratory Schools in Wisconsin.
McGeoch, Dorothy M.; And Others
This study of campus laboratory schools presents their development, status, problems, and future through an inventory of the nine schools associated with the state universities of Wisconsin. Information contributed by a survey of university faculty, campus school teachers, administrators, and public school personnel through questionnaires, discussions, and conferences as well as a review of recent national surveys and trends are presented. Six implications emerged from the study: the campus school exists to serve the institution of which it is a part; the Wisconsin campus schools are attempting to perform a variety of functions with insufficient resources; the functions of the campus school must be clearly defined in relation to the institution of which it is a part; it is unrealistic to consider closing the campus schools for reasons of economy; the development of cooperative programs with public school systems would ease the burden of campus schools; and the campus school should be maintained only so long as it can perform essential functions for the institution of which it is a part. Recommendations which grew out of these implications are intended to create a framework and plan for action. Appended are questionnaires which were used in the study. (SM)
