Engelhardt and Engelhardt, Inc., Purdy Station, NY.
A model organization of the State educational structure is proposed and specific suggestions are made concerning State-local governance, financing plant operation, and construction of job descriptions for certain key functions. Recommendations for implementation of the program are: (1) individualized instruction and early childhood education, (2) basic occupational orientation from which students can make critical vocational decisions, (3) vocational programs suitable to the needs and talents of all students, (4) provision for and encouragement of lifelong education and reeducation, (5) involvement of students in community action, (6) schools to serve as agencies for social programs that affect students and communities, and (7) efficiency in meeting these goals. The consulting firm preparing the report was assisted by Mr. Joseph M. Cronin and Associates of Harvard University. Tables, maps, charts, and diagrams serve to elaborate the text. (Portions of the seven maps may reproduce poorly because of poor contrast.) (Author/MLF)
