Restructuring Education: The Florida Experience. Conference Proceedings, November 1988.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Office of Policy Research and Improvement.
Restructuring of the Florida education system calls for fundamental changes in curriculum and instruction, authority, staff accountability, reward and incentive systems, and the relationship between schools and others. Five examples of the current school restructuring initiatives were presented at the Florida Conference on School Restructuring: (1) restructuring for more effective teaching and learning; (2) restructuring for more effective leadership; (3) restructuring to redefine teaching; (4) restructuring to meet the needs of at-risk youth; and (5) Florida Department of Education's Summer School Enhancement Institute. Twelve school districts were invited to send a teacher, principal, and district administrator to present and generate recommendations for how the state could promote restructuring in Florida. An analysis of what has been learned from the conference is provided with recommendations for further state action. (SI)
