Doing Something About Educational Failure: A System for Educational Improvement Through Community Involvement.
Green, John S.; Larick, Keith T., Jr.
After examining factors contributing to success and failure in the schools, the authors present a six-stage program for success--develop community-based goals, develop a district philosophy for implementing the goals, develop a framework of implementation policies, develop district-level learning objectives, develop instructional programs to implement the objectives in individual schools, and develop mechanisms and methods for monitoring results of instructional programs. Parent involvement is the most important factor in the program. Parents not only have a right to participate in determining what is taught and how it is taught, but they have responsibilities in this area. The bulk of the book outlines a method for introducing, developing, implementing, and monitoring the six-stage system. (Author/IRT)
