Guidelines for ERIC Clearinghouses: Outreach to Citizens Concerned with Educational Decision Making.
Guidelines to help ERIC clearinghouses reach lay persons and inform them of the resources available through the ERIC information network are provided. The guidelines were developed following on-site interviews with persons who have expertise in information dissemination and/or who are actively involved in providing information to citizens involved in educational decision making. The document is organized into six sections in addition to a short introduction. Section 2 presents an historical overview of citizen participation and discusses the implications of citizen involvement in educational decision making for ERIC clearinghouses. Section 3 contains the guidelines for ERIC clearinghouses that wish to expand their user services to meet the information needs of the community. Section 4 is an annotated list of readings on citizen participation in education which suggests resource material to help implement the guidelines. Section 5 contains suggestions about how to conduct a workshop for citizen groups. Finally, section 6 describes an action plan for educational problem solving. (Author/DE)
