Pride and Promise. Schools of Excellence for All the People.
Raywid, Mary Anne; And Others
The papers in this monograph attempt to identify some basic characteristics and conditions of educational excellence. Under consideration are: (1) traditional beliefs that underlie the structure of the schools, and what Americans expect the public schools' responsibilities should be; (2) the purpose and social role of the schools; (3) educational objectives and the environment for excellence in the schools; (4) the kinds and modes of learning that must be promoted if the public schools are to enhance students' intellectual development and achievement; and (5) educating teachers for excellence. The concluding note states that excellence in education will require persistent attention, high tolerance for diversity and ambiguity, and a regular diet of intelligence and creativity. (JD)
