Selected Issues in Education: Curriculum, Students, and Risk Management.
Chang, Kunlun; And Others
Changes in schools resulting from the large social changes following World War II provide many new challenges for the educational administrator. This document reports on several independently conducted studies and research discussions in the areas of curriculum, student characteristics, and risk management in order to better understand these changes and their effects. The seven reports cover both public school districts and colleges. The first report by Jim Tjaden, concerns higher education curriculum and travel education programs; it provides a national overview of institutional practices. Outcome Based Education in a suburban public school district is the topic of the second report, by Judy Krings. The third report, by Martha Willie, is on accountability in higher education student affairs. The fourth report, by Kunlun Chang, describes the international student program at a midwestern university and the administrative procedures relevant to leadership and management of these areas. The fifth report, by Adiele Nwachukwu, is on the need for day care services for college students who are also parents. The relationship between standardized test scores and course grades for African American college freshmen is the topic of the sixth report, by Joan Gilson. The final report, by Karen Komoroski covers the area of risk management in higher education professional programs, specifically clinical grade appeals and student grievance procedures. Each report provides a definition of its topic, history, a description of the results of the study, and an explanation of relevance to school management and students. Four appendices include surveys, graphs, and tables. (Author/LL)
