Education 2000: Rural Minnesota in the World. A Case Study of Redwood Falls School District 1988-1991. Volume 1: Transformational Process and Initial Products of Change.
Enloe, Walter, Ed.
This report describes and evaluates an educational partnership that brought together the resources of three rural Minnesota school districts, institutions of higher education, the Minnesota State Department of Education, and a national organization in order to undertake the long-term development of a program in international education (K-12). The program was developed under the National Model Schools Network in global education curriculum development (Education 2000). This report includes: (1) the original prospectus for this model, discussing the conceptual framework, the purpose of the project, and the planning procedure based on an "ecological approach"; (2) research plan identifying themes of study, specifying data collection strategies, partners, and the timeline; and (3) the project manual development. The focus of the report is on the program of the Redwood Falls School District (Minnesota), which evolved from a program development project in international education into a school and community development process. The document also discusses the development of a national model. Copies of local newspaper reports about the Education 2000 Program and the Redwood Falls project are included. Appendices include 1990 testimonials from steering committee leaders and papers presented at the 1992 Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association regarding Education 2000 and the Redwood Falls School District.
