School Board Members and Community Education. Role Guide Series #2.
Decker, Virginia A., Ed.
This guide is the second in a series of eleven generated in 1978 as the result of workshops that focused on peer training, a different approach to teaching. The workshops provided the opportunity for members of eleven identified role groups to work together with peers to examine the relationship between their specific role group and community education and the ways in which they could stimulate their peers to improve role performance and effectiveness. This booklet focuses on community education as seen by local and state school board representatives. Topics considered include the power and responsibilities of school boards, benefits derived from and problems of community education, levels of school board involvement, program evaluation, board skills required for developing community education, and strategies for increasing interest and skills.
