A Systematic Approach to Renewal of Public Education in Massachusetts.
Quigley, Lawrence
In the belief that the lack of dissemination of ideas is the cause of the static quality of education today, this paper proposes an interrelationship between local school systems, state department of education, regional U.S. Office of Education, educational cooperatives, teacher education institutions, and other ancillary social agencies. To bring about an effective linkage with the state education department, it is stated, a state college is in a unique position to be a catalyst: two state agencies are thus more effectively able to join forces with the local district and regional groupings of districts and help coordinate projects and assure more effective planning, continuity, and long-term development. It is further held that a practicum which blends preservice through inservice education becomes viable in the central institution, which is the teacher center. The overall plan is described in the first chapter. Chapter 2 details a systematic approach for a public education renewal system and describes each component organization. Chapter 3, entitled "A Life-Style of Learning," discusses a multidisciplinary approach, the affective domain, affective dimensions, and the art of learning. Chapter 4 quotes research on teacher centers and defines their role in educational renewal. Chapter 5 briefly describes the need for state commitment for such a plan. (JA)
