A Study of Educational Reform in the Southeast: Application of a Methodology to Map and Track Educational Reform.
Haenn, Joseph F.; Houser, James D.
In 1983 a number of reports were issued calling for the reform of elementary and secondary education in the United States. This paper describes a methodology for a study that will compare and contrast reliable information across the southeastern states about the implementation of actual reform initiatives, using a framework of 41 major categories of reform, derived from commissioned reports, statewide reform plans and legislative bills, oversight committees and evaluation reports, and reports issued by state boards or departments of education. For each category, each state will be analyzed to determine whether that reform initiative has been proposed, mandated, or implemented. These results will be captured in summary fashion in a separate document for each state. A sample page from one of these state summary reports is included. Other documents to result from the study will include (1) a detailed description of reform in southeastern states, which refers notations for each state to the appropriate state report or legislation; (2) a survey of reform efforts across all of the states under investigation; and (3) an analysis of specific educational reforms across states, emphasizing timing, implementation, results, and problems. References are included. (TE)
