Designating Winners: Using Evaluation in School Recognition Programs. Papers from the National Conference on School Recognition Programs (1st, Miami, Florida, 1987).
Wynne, Edward A., Ed.
This monograph is composed of papers from the first National Conference on School Recognition Programs. School recognition programs vary considerably, but they do acknowledge schools that perform well (winners) and have recognizable public relations value. Consequently, school recognition programs have substantial potential for educational improvement. Papers include: (1) "Introduction: School Recognition Programs--From Fad to Institution?" (E. A. Wynne); (2) "Characteristics of an Ideal Recognition Program" (E. A. Wynne); (3) "Five Recognition Programs" (D. J. Peterson); (4) "Technical Issues in Designing and Implementing School Recognition Programs" (G. K. Mandeville and L. W. Anderson); (5) "Criteria of Success in School Recognition Programs" (B. Rowan); and (6) "School Recognition Programs: Controlling or Empowering?" (T. Astuto). The five programs described by D. J. Peterson include: the National Elementary School Recognition Program and the National Secondary School Recognition Program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education; the California School Recognition Program sponsored by the California State Department of Education; the South Carolina School Incentive Reward Program sponsored by the South Carolina State Department of Education; the Quality Instruction Incentives Program sponsored by the Dade County (Florida) Public Schools and the United Teachers of Dade; and the For Character School Recognition Program sponsored by the University of Illinois (Chicago).
