Research Symposium on Research and Evaluation Related to Comprehensive School Reform (2nd, Washington, DC, June 26-27, 2000). [Summary and CD-ROM].
AEL, Inc., Charleston, WV.
Congress began funding the Comprehensive School Reform Demonstration (CSRD) program in 1998 to stimulate whole school reform in low-achieving schools. Schools receiving CSRD funding are required to evaluate the reforms implemented and the student results achieved. In response to interest among educators and researchers, a national research symposium was convened in June 1999. The success of this symposium encouraged AEL to organize a followup in 2000. This CD-ROM provides a picture of the symposium. A summary is included with the CD. Panelists and audience members discussed five central questions: (1) what does research show that assists schools in developing a comprehensive school reform program: (2) what does research offer to foster successful implementation of CSRD; (3) what are the key issues and questions to guide the continuing CSRD agenda; (4) how can research findings be translated into practical advice and useful tools for practitioners and policymakers; and (5) how can schools be supported in undertaking, implementing, and sustaining comprehensive school reform. Comments of researchers and professional educators to these questions are summarized on the CD-ROM. (SLD)
