Sharing Educational Success: All Kids Can Be Winners. Report on the December 1989 Regional Conference Sponsored by the Southeastern Educational Improvement Laboratory.
Southeastern Educational Improvement Lab., Research Triangle Park, NC.
Summaries of talks from this 3-day conference emphasize the potential of all students from any background to succeed in their education. One keynote speaker urges restructuring of educators' beliefs that many children cannot achieve at the level of a high school graduate. Speakers describe successful programs to encourage female school administrators, recruit minority teachers, and encourage local students to return as teachers to their hometown schools. Two administrators discuss site-based school management and participatory decision making. Other speakers describe public relations programs that foster two-way communications between citizens and schools, one including a computerized telephone message system. Cooperative learning systems that reward all students for their peers' success spread learning throughout a classroom. Other programs described include: (1) training physically handicapped students for physical fitness; (2) using modem communication for international collaborative writing; (3) integrating curricula; (4) establishing early childhood education; (5) training lead teachers, and (6) realigning math education. Speakers discuss school-based child care, parent education, parent involvement, family literacy, impaired school districts, school-based enterprise, dropout prevention, and writing programs for kids at risk.
