The topics examined include citizen and school responsibility for the future of education; sources and inadequacies of school financial support; cooperative community, student, and teacher planning of curriculum; and teacher accountability. Also included are the results of a Teacher Opinion Poll conducted in 1973 studying teacher reactions to basic school programs, student violence, and class size.
