Cooperative Action for Greater Intellectual Impact on Educational Programs in the Public Schools of East Texas. A Research Report.
Cooksey, Bennett; Moses, Morgan
This study attempted to determine ways in which cooperative action among local school districts, the Education Service Center, and the University could make a greater impact on the educational program of the East Texas schools. Specific objectives included determining the primary concerns of public school personnel for professional growth and staff development activities, the primary concern of public school personnel for curriculum improvement projects, areas in which cooperative action is needed to utilize the resources of the Service Center and Stephen F. Austin State University in the educational program of the public schools, the concerns and opportunities for conducting research in the public schools, and to point out the professional services available through the University to the public schools through coordinated effort. Forty-six schools were visited by teams of professors to interview representative groups of teachers to identify the concerns of public school personnel about students, faculty, teaching methods, societal problems, and administrative problems, and to determine ways that the Center and the University could assist the schools in working toward solutions to problems.
