Institute for Development of Educational Activities, Dayton, OH.
Composed of educators, administrators, and laypeople, this task force proposed three general areas of recommendations for the reform of secondary education. First, citizens and parents must become more involved in the activities and decision making of high schools. Second, educating students for responsibility must become a primary function of the school itself. Third, alternative programs to the traditional secondary education must be expanded and evaluated. Chapter titles of the book include (1) Reform through Community Involvement: The Third Force, (2) School Personnel and Their Response to Citizen Concerns, (3) Seven Approaches to Community Involvement, (4) The Effect of Collective Bargaining on the Reform of Secondary Education, (5) Identifying Student Responsibilities, (6) Educating for Responsibility through the High School Curriculum, (7) Alternative Programs as Educational Options, (8) Work/Study Programs as Educational Alternatives, (9) Youth Service Programs as Educational Alternatives, (10) Planning Processes for Alternative Programs, and (11) Recommendations.
