Alameda County Library System, Hayward, CA.; Santa Clara County Library, San Jose, CA.
Two guides for parents and others concerned with the education of children in their community are provided in this packet. "What We Want Our Children to Get Out of School" is a community discussion guide modeled from National Issues Forum material that provides the framework and setting for adults to share their views. It begins with information on three choices the community can make about what is most important for children to learn: basic skills, learning skills, or social skills. Each choice is discussed in terms of what should be done, likes, and concerns. Compiled by adult learners, "Action for Children's Education" is a guide to assist parents following their participation in a forum on education. It provides suggestions on visiting the child's school and steps to take if a parent has a concern about the child's school. (YLB)
