Law-Related Education in America: Guidelines for the Future. Report of the American Bar Association Special Committee on Youth Education for Citizenship.
Henning, Joel F.; And Others
This report is based upon a study of law-related education in America supported by a grant from the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA). The study involves a national survey of law-related education projects active in elementary and secondary schools and public and private agencies which have supported or might support such projects, including foundations and government agencies. The objectives of the study are (1) to compile and analyze information on the strengths and weakness of law-related education projects; (2) to compile and analyze information on the practices, procedures, and priorities of existing and potential funding sources; and (3) to issue recommended guidelines on law-related education. Chapter one of the document attempts to define law-related education; chapter two is concerned with project structure and administration; and chapter three deals with teaching and learning providing guidelines for educational goals, teacher training, curriculum and materials development and program evaluation. Funding is the primary concern of the fourth chapter which includes recommended guidelines for funding. Chapter five deals with the future of law-related education. Several appendices provide a listing of program goals, analysis of the data, and a description of projects which serve as examples of project design and educational methodology discussed in the text.
