Community Education: A Resource and Planning Guide.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
Suggestions for developing active school-community partnerships are offered in this guidebook, which is based on the experiences of many Wisconsin communities. A central theme is that today's public schools must rediscover the importance of integrating the entire community with the formal education process and lifelong learning. Chapter 1 describes how community education can make a difference by serving both students and community members. A history of community education is offered in chapter 2. The third chapter offers planning strategies that range from conceptualizing the idea to initiating the program to conducting an evaluation. Ways to make the plan a reality are described in chapter 4, with a focus on coordinator responsibilities and program offerings, policies, and evaluation. Appendices contain several sample forms, questionnaires, policy statements, agreements, relevant Wisconsin statutes, and a glossary. Sixteen figures are included. (LMI)
