What Is Working in Education: A Symposium. Committee on Education and Labor, House of Representatives. One Hundred First Congress, Second Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Education and Labor.
Schools and school districts throughout the nation are developing and implementing educational programs designed to improve teaching, learning, and school management. This report provides a description of how schools and school districts in various parts of the country are developing and implementing improvement programs, based on their own definition of identified needs. Each of the 13 programs presented at a symposium designed to showcase examples of constructive reform in U.S. education is described. So that the programs may be regarded as models for replication, each description begins with the problem addressed or the motivation for initiating the program. The program's features, its research base or the intellectual history that supports it, and the evidence for the success of the program. Implications for federal policy and legislation are included with lessons from the project. Each description ends with names and addresses for further information. (MLF)
