The Report of the Citizens Commission on Basic Education.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg.
The responsibility of the Citizens Commission was to propose recommendations for the improvement of basic education in Pennsylvania. The Commission's recommendations are an attempt to clearly define the boundaries of the schooling process and to increase the effectiveness of the instructional process within those boundaries. The Commission presented recommendations for reforming curricular practices, the organization for instruction, staffing, management, physical facilities, establishing educational policy, instituting accountability, providing supportive services, and financing education. All of the Commission's recommendations are based on the premise that education should be personalized to meet the needs of the student. (NE)
