The Florida Educational Research and Development Program. Second Annual Report.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
This report describes the efforts being made through the Educational Research and Development Program to implement the new state strategy of reducing restrictions on local and institutional officials and at the same time holding them accountable for the effectiveness of their programs. Chapter II considers the development of techniques for monitoring educational results, costs, and resource utilization, including the writing of both general and specific behavioral objectives, the preparation of a detailed cost accounting system, a system for assessing resource utilization, and a method of coordinating and managing the development of assessment techniques. Chapter III deals with the identification of alternative educational policies and practices, which include individualized instruction, flexible staff utilization, teacher training, and licensing practices built on specific competencies; the expansion of school resources to serve the community; the extension of the school year to provide for more efficient use of school facilities; and the development of alternative ways to use educational capital. Chapter IV synthesizes the information presented in the report and establishes specific targets for the future. Four appendixes include the legal authorization for the program, notes on the 1969-71 program, an annotated bibliography, and a list of R&D projects now underway in Florida. (MBM)
