Successful Services for Our Children and Families at Risk.
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Paris (France). Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.
The research reported in this book develops a theme introduced in a previous work published by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, "Our Children at Risk" (1995), which noted the integration of services as a way to provide more effective services for families and children at risk of school failure. Part 1 of this book gives a broad picture of services integration and a study conducted by the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI) in the following chapters: (1) "Introduction" (Peter Evans and Philippa Hurrell); (2) "Introducing the CERI Study" (Peter Evans and Philippa Hurrell); (3) "The Mandating Level: Legislation and Policy" (Janet Friedman, Peter Evans, and Philippa Hurrell); (4) "Strategic, Operational and Field Levels: The Theoretical and Practical Dimensions of Integrated Services" (Philippa Hurrell and Peter Evans); (5) "Strategic, Operational and Field Levels: The Main Outcomes" (Philippa Hurrell and Peter Evans); and (6) "Principal Conclusions and Policy Challenges" (Peter Evans and Philippa Hurrell). Part 2 provides case studies of good practice in Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, The Netherlands, Portugal, and the United States that were completed in the course of the study of integration of services. In Part 3, more specific information is provided about the laws and policies in 13 participating countries. (Contains 4 tables and 105 references.) (SLD)
