Scenarios of Three Critical Issues.
Roberts, Jane M. E.; And Others
This document was prepared for participants of the 1986 Invitational Conference for Boards of Education in Maryland. It contains three sections that present scenarios dealing with the following issues: staffing, interest group involvement, and secondary schools. Each section includes: (1) a definition or discussion of the issues currently surrounding the topic; (2) a scenario, set in 1995, suggesting one way in which some of these issues might be addressed; and (3) a set of questions that a school board or superintendent might ask to determine what is being done or might be done to address the topic. Scenarios are hypothetical "future histories" that help to focus attention on the details, consequences, or inconsistencies of a critical topic. Three tables are included. (LMI)
