Regional Educational Development in New York State. Vols. I and II. A Project Report
Egner, J. R.; And Others
In an effort to determine what constitutes a workable educational region, demographic, economic, social, political, and educational data from eight New York supervisory districts were collected and analyzed. Each district included a board of cooperative educational services (BOCES). This document reports the results of these eight case studies with emphases on goal setting, achievement, innovation, and system relations. Numerous conclusions and recommendations are listed, a primary conclusion being that the intermediate educational unit or region must be determined on the bases of the size, density, and distribution of population; the movement of people to work, market, and recreation; the layout of major transportation arteries; the nature of the economy; the financial ability to support public education; and other factors. An extensive bibliography on educational regionalism is included. (LLR)
