Reassessing the Relationship Between High School and College.
Institute for Development of Educational Activities, Dayton, OH.
The relationship between high schools and colleges during the 20th century has been at best a weak one. College professors and high school teachers belong to separate professional organizations, and rarely do conferences involve both types of educators together. Thus, a communication gap exists that has at its base a problem that students are complaining about everywhere -- that of a lack of relevance in the classroom. High schools are ideally supposed to prepare students for the college experience, but this cannot take place unless high school teachers realize what is to be expected of students after they go to college. To study this and related problems, a conference was held at which participants were students, faculty, and administrators from both secondary and higher education institutions. This document represents a summary of the conference proceedings. (HS)
