Proceedings of National Seminar on Year-Round Education.
Florida Technological Univ., Orlando.; Brevard County Board of Public Instruction, Titusville, FL.; Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
The conference was held to exchange updated information concerning alternatives to the traditional 9-month school year; question motives and methods relating to established and planned year-round programs; and identify problem areas in year-round school operations. Presented in chronological order are all the speeches given at the conference. Topics discussed include a history of and rationale for the year-round school, the types of year-round school programs, internal problems associated with a year-round school program, financial implications, the relation of the year-round school to the public, politics and year-round education, overhauling year-round education, and humane year-round schools. Much of the conference was devoted to an examination of specific year-round school programs. Descriptions of these case studies are included in the document, as well as an evaluation and a summary of the conference, a list of conference participants, and an evaluation questionnaire.
