Battelle Research Outlook, Volume 2 Number 2. The Schools: Organizing for Change.
Westerman, Arthur B., Ed.
"Outlook" publications focus on areas of science and technology in which research can be valuable to industry, government, and society as a whole. Their purpose is to point up significant current problems in those areas and to suggest effective research approaches to their solution. This issue, dealing with changes taking place in our schools and total educational system, presents six major essays. The first, "New Schools for New Times," explores designing schools that are responsive to changing demands and focuses on improving student performance. The need for clearly defining what schools want to accomplish is discussed in "Bringing Management by Objectives to Schools.""The Curriculum: Make It Relevant!, Make It Work!" demands the formalizing of precise objectives and instructional goals as a basis for better curricula. The prototype of a practical system for teacher appraisal is spelled out in "Appraising Teacher Performance," while the adoption of a planning--programming--budgeting system is called for in "PPBS: Planning for Schools of the Future." The final article, "A Better School/Community Dialogue," looks closely at the communication programs of educators who are confronted by the public's growing disenchantment and concern with school practices and expenditures. Miscellaneous notes and research briefs complete the publication. (BL)
