Guidelines for ERIC Collection Holders: Outreach to Citizens Concerned with Educational Decision Making.
Guidelines to help ERIC microfiche collection holders acquaint lay persons in their community with 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 the short introduction. Section 2 presents an historical overview of citizen participation in education and discusses the implication of citizen involvement in education for ERIC microfiche collection holders. Section 3 contains the guidelines for ERIC collection holders who wish to develop a citizen outreach program in their service areas. Section 4, an annotated bibliography of materials dealing with citizen participation in education, suggests resource material to help implement the guidelines. Section 5 contains suggestions on how to conduct a workshop for citizen groups. Finally, section 6 describes an action plan for educational problem solving. (Author/DE)
