Profiles of the Regional Educational Laboratories, 1999-2000.
Spencer, Lynn M.; Stonehill, Robert M.
This handbook describes the mission of each of the 10 Regional Educational Laboratories in the U.S. The laboratories ensure that those involved in educational improvement at the local, state, and regional levels have access to the best available information from research and practice, thus guaranteeing that lessons about school reform that are developed at one site can be applied elsewhere. The book explores the laboratories' key initiatives and ongoing work, including the individual "signature programs" that each lab has developed that have made a difference in education. It also provides examples of recent, high-quality materials selected from the many publications and products available from each lab and offers a preview of each lab's Web site. The labs that are featured include the Northeast and Islands Laboratory at Brown University; the Mid-Atlantic Laboratory for Student Success; the Appalachia Educational Laboratory; the Southeastern Regional Vision for Education; the North Central Regional Educational Laboratory; the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory; the Mid-continent Regional Education Laboratory; the WestEd Laboratory; the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory; and the Pacific Resources for Education and Learning Laboratory. There is also contact information both for the laboratories and for program officers of the Office of Educational Research and Improvement. (RJM)
