School Restructuring: What the Reformers Are Saying.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
A discussion with 10 nationally recognized education reformers is summarized in this report. A goal of the discussion was to find common ways to fundamentally alter the American educational structure. Participants' statements are organized around six central themes, which form a paradigm for effective school restructuring. Sections address each of the six issues, which include expectations of students, ways in which schools function, curriculum and pedagogy, assessment, external support, and educator training. (LMI)
