The North Carolina State Superintendent's Task Force on Secondary Education studied the status of North Carolina secondary education and made 65 recommendations. The recommendations are contained within the narrative that discusses the topics of specific progress toward relevancy, unmet educational needs, conditions for optimum learning supported by research, purposes of secondary education in historical perspective and current application, characteristics of adolescents in society emphasizing work experience and humanities, development of curriculum, changing role of the teacher and improvement of teacher-student relations, governance including student rights and citizen involvement, financing changes for reform, and improving facilities for flexible programs. Six education concepts are stressed: the school as an agent for social change, the need for community involvement and cooperation, humanizing the school, relevancy of courses, new programs through research and development, and needed improvements in finance.
