Dissemination as a Strategy for School Improvement.
Ogden, Evelyn
By 1969-70 it was clear to a number of development communities at both the state and federal level that education didn't need more programs, but more programs that work. Research and development products that address a wide variety of local needs were available. Over the past four or five years, more research and development funding has been used for dissemination as dissemination has emerged as a potentially high payoff activity in terms of school improvement. The results are far from conclusive, but some early data indicate that dissemination is a successful strategy for school improvement--in New Jersey, 432 of 589 active school districts adopted or adapted at least one of 35 different programs made available to the districts; high-need urban center districts are at least minimal adopters; 83 percent of the highest need districts in the state have adopted a validated or other quality controlled program since 1972; and a greater percentage of the lowest rated districts are adopters than are higher rated districts. Data indicate that student learning is being increased by the adopted programs. (Author/IRT)
