Introduction to School Restructuring Issues.
Brief to Education Writers, n1 Fall 1991
Three areas have become focal points in the restructuring movement: achievement, equity, and school-based governance. Restructuring efforts are initiated from four main sources--national and regional reform projects, state initiatives, district strategies, and individual school efforts. The Center on Organization and Restructuring of Schools is engaged in a 5-year program of research and dissemination that will analyze restructuring along 6 issues pivotal to elementary, middle, and high schools: authentic achievement, educational equity, decentralization, communities of learning, reflective dialogue, and accountability. This document encourages education writers to submit accounts of local school restructuring efforts. It offers questions to help stimulate story ideas on different aspects of restructuring. The questions for individual schools are related to the three areas of achievement, equity, and school-based governance. The questions for the district pertain to goals, process, budget, and staff development. A list of selected contacts--professional associations and organizations on school restructuring and education writing--is included. (LMI)
