Pioneer Initiatives To Reform Education Support Programs. A Center Report.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health in Schools.
This report extrapolates basic implications from work being done by pioneer initiatives to reform education support initiatives. Pioneer initiatives around the United States are demonstrating the need to rethink how schools and communities can meet the challenge of addressing persistent barriers to student learning. This report stresses the need to expand school reform, restructuring education support programs under the umbrella of a reform component that focuses directly on barriers to learning and development. The pioneer initiatives discussed in this report show how to use this type of enabling component and then restructure education programs from the school outward. Descriptions are given of the work of the Memphis, Tennessee City Schools, the Detroit, Michigan Public Schools, and the Los Angeles Unified School District, California. Other programs highlight reform efforts in Hawaii, Washington, and California, as well as the Urban Learning Center of the New American Schools Comprehensive School Reform Model. Appendixes list conference participants, discuss expanding the framework for school accountability, and present an example of standards for an enabling component. (Contains 216 references.) (SLD)
