Creativity of the School.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.
Six reports from a workshop of Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) members establish the framework for the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation project on creativity of the school. The reports reflect the workshop's goals to establish priorities for further study and to identify contributions and benefits of member countries from a study of the school as a focal point for social change. The major issues which arose in the workshop are the following: organization and relationships within the school, incentive systems for teachers, allocation of financial resources to the school, role of the inspectorate, and regional and local professional support to the school. The first report presents an analysis and taxonomy of the principal factors influencing creativity of the school. Next, ways to strengthen creativity of the school, administrative relationships between the school and outside institutions, and organization and relationships within the school are reported. The final reports deal with interventions for strengthening the school's creativity and with professional support to the school. A list of workshop participants is appended. (Author/KSM)
