Changing South Carolina's Schools. A Resource Guide for Schools and Communities Creating a New Vision of Public Education.
South Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching and School Leadership, Rock Hill.
This resource guide provides information on education reform issues and on programs, projects, and models that are attempting to improve public schooling. Section 1, "The Fundamentals of Restructuring," summarizes the major characteristics of restructuring and includes references to the views of influential educators and agencies on the meaning and process of restructuring. Section 2, "The National Movement for School Reform," outlines several major education reform initiatives. The third section, "School Change in South Carolina," provides an overview of the South Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching and School Leadership and its associate school program. The 100 associate schools are K-12 schools, which are implementing restructuring models. The Center provides technical assistance to the associate schools. This section also summarizes results of two surveys of associate school teacher attitudes, three case studies of associate schools that are in the midst of restructuring, and a curriculum reform survey. Highlights of innovations discussed in the responses of the 46 associate schools that participated in the curriculum reform survey are provided. Profiles of school change initiatives in South Carolina are described, including the Goodlad initiative, which involves a network of five colleges and the Center establishing professional development schools and linking teacher education reform to school reform. An annotated bibliography and resources guide and a directory of the associate schools are included. (IAH)
