Survey of Public Interest and Other Innovative Programs.
National Association of Independent Schools, Boston, MA. Commission on Educational Issues.
Material for this directory was gathered from two questionnaires distributed to independent elementary and secondary schools affiliated with the National Association of Independent Schools. More than 250 schools responded. Four areas of inquiry were covered. The first concerned new organizational structures instituted in schools. Special emphasis was placed on the ways schools have made an effort to build a capacity for research and development to test new educational ideas. The second area of inquiry concerned programs that serve new student constituencies such as the disadvantaged or non-English speaking. The third area was new curricula instituted such as parenting, ecology, or child development courses. Finally, the questionnaire concerned public interest programs. These were programs implemented in cooperation with some public agency or programs that filled a community need. The publication is both an overview of innovative programs at independent schools and a directory of specific ideas. An index of responding schools, including full addresses and cross-references to programs, is also included. (Author/JM)
