The Renewal and Improvement of Secondary Education: Concepts and Practices.
Klausmeier, Herbert J.; And Others
This book was written for use in university courses and inservice programs directed toward the improvement of secondary education. Part I contains an introduction and overview of an improvement design, including descriptions of proposals that have been made for school improvement, and experiences of school practitioners in improvement programs. In part II, instruction, curriculum and evaluation of educational programs are discussed. Curriculum priorities are considered, with particular reference to the needs of the individual student. Part III offers discussions on administrative arrangements and processes, organization for instruction and advising, and teacher-advisor programs. The final section suggests ways in which home, school, and community relations may be improved, and discusses the uses of research in developing school improvement programs. (JD)
