Fulfilling Reform's Promise: The Need To Expand the Vision of Education in the South.
BellSouth Foundation, Inc. Atlanta, GA.
This study explored the role of philanthropy in educational reform. A survey of 22 educators with links to the southern United States was conducted to identify educational needs and to solicit ideas for educational improvement. Priorities redefined by the BellSouth Foundation in response to survey findings include supporting educators to meet students's changing needs, linking educational policy with changing regional needs, and expanding the role of information technologies in education. A conclusion is that reform is most efficiently accelerated through working at the professional and policy levels of education in conjunction with public support and collaboration among private organizations. Thirteen charts and graphs illustrating regional economic and population trends and projections for the next decade are included. Appendices include the evaluation questionnaire and lists of task force members and their reports, BellSouth management panel members, and advisory committee members. Several drawings illustrate the text. (12 references) (LMI)
