The Current Status of the Humanities in the Curriculum of the Public Schools of Colorado.
Keeley, Jean Ann
This study investigated the status of the humanities in the Colorado public school curriculum. Four types of humanities programs were studied: (1) courses specifically designed as humanities courses, (2) humanities-type courses incorporated into a regular single subject course, (3) specially selected humanities experiences designed for a particular school but not a formal part of any existing course, and (4) programs externally administered to an individual school. Data relating to the prevalency of these four types of programs and information describing their content was gathered through a questionnaire and some selected interviews. The study presents detailed statistical results for humanities programs in 62 percent of the state's schools. Among the conclusions drawn was that these programs tend to exist in particular schools because of the schools' educators and that the existence of a program was not necessarily related to the school level, geographic location, socioeconomic neighborhood, enrollment size, physical facilities, or the organizational approaches to instruction.
