National Forum on Excellence in Education (Indianapolis, IN, December 8, 1983). Session on Roles and Responsibilites. Papers Presented.
Berger, Marsha R.; And Others
These seven discussion papers present the views of two classroom teachers, two superintendents, a state Parent Teacher Association president, an elementary school principal, and a state school board member on the roles and responsibilities of parents, teachers, principals, the business community, and government in improving public education. The first paper stresses the necessity of a cooperative effort at the federal, state, and local government levels to provide advocacy for education and to support it with more funds. The second paper enumerates specific responsibilities for each of these government levels. The next paper presents a superintendent's five major responsibilities with respect to the school board, business community, parents, staff, and students. The role of parents and the Parent Teacher Association and the role of the principal in planning and carrying out reforms are discussed in the next two papers. The sixth paper looks at changes in Montana due to the current educational reform movement and the problem of funding reforms. The last paper describes a project in Columbus, Ohio, called "Organizing for the Nineties," which is sponsoring long term planning to use all possible community resources for education. (CB)
