Southeastern Regional Vision for Education (SERVE), Tallahassee, FL.
Proceedings of a conference designed to provide a group of teachers, administrators and university professors with an opportunity to share information on initiating and sustaining innovative programs in education are summarized in this paper. The participants represented 21 exemplary programs in mathematics, science, and/or computer education as identified by the SouthEastern Regional Vision for Education (SERVE). Four sections discuss the following four topics: reasons for innovation; the characteristics of a good innovator; factors that make for program success; and components recommended for expanding or transferring innovative programs. The final section presents recommendations made by participants for local administrators, policymakers, teacher educators, and SERVE. One figure is included. Appendices include a reprint of the article, "Getting Reform Right: What Works and What Doesn't," by M. G. Fullan and M. B. Miles, the forum agenda, and a list of participants. (LMI)
