The performance of the American high school as an institution is discussed, based on a study of U.S. secondary education conducted by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Attention is directed to students, teachers, the principal, the classroom, and the curricula. Field studies were conducted at 15 public high schools, which were chosen to represent a cross-section of schools. Attention is directed to the core curricula, which consists of courses in English, literature, the arts, foreign language, history, civics, science, mathematics, technology, and health. Additional topics include the following: student aptitude test scores, secondary school course requirements, the importance of literacy, the transition to work and further learning, high school instruction and the conditions of teaching, teacher salaries, teacher preparation and certification, technology and schools, students as volunteers in the school and other institutions, the leadership role of the principal, gifted and high-risk students, college-school connections, school-corporation connections, and the public commitment to excellence in schools. Recommendations for each of these areas are offered, and information on the Carnegie study is appended, along with a bibliography. (Sw)

Scholarship assessed : evaluation of the professoriate by Charles E Glassick( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Begun under the oversight of Ernest L. Boyer and completed by authors Glassick, Huber, and Maeroff, Scholarship Assessed examines the changing nature of scholarship in today's colleges and universities. It proposes new standards for assessing scholarship and evaluating faculty with special emphasis on methods for documenting effective scholarship.

The Control of the campus : a report on the governance of higher education( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1994 in English and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Governance in U.S. higher education is discussed, based on a 1982 survey of decision making in higher education with attention to its roots, the effects of current conditions on decision-making arrangements, and a possible governance framework for the future. While both private and public education are considered, the public sector is emphasized. Governance is defined as both formal decision arrangements and informal procedures by which standards are maintained. Information was obtained from a survey of decision-making in state higher education agencies, flagship universities, four-year colleges, and two-year colleges. After discussing the mission of universities, the tradition of self-regulation in American higher education is examined, including the governing board and voluntary accreditation. Also covered are outside governance connections (the state, the federal government, and the courts) that have significantly altered the mission and governance of higher education. It is concluded that, on balance, higher education's partnership with governments on both state and national levels has generated far more benefits than it has administrative burdens. However, because external influences on academic governance should not be allowed to overwhelm internal governance structures, colleges are urged to strengthen self-regulation capacity, to take leadership roles, and to revitalize their historic governance tradition. The survey questionnaire is included, together with a list of participating institutions and agencies. (SW) reprinted from ERIC

Ready to learn : a mandate for the nation by Ernest L Boyer( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has proposed a 10-year campaign to enable the country to meet the national education goal of having every child start school ready to learn. The campaign has a 7-step agenda. First, every child must have a healthy birth, and be well-nourished and well-protected in the early years of life. The second step involves parent education and empowerment. Parents must provide their children with a secure environment that encourages language development. Third, high quality preschool programs that provide good care and address all dimensions of school readiness must be available. Fourth, workplace policies must be flexible in meeting families' needs, supplying child care services, and giving parents time with their young children. The fifth step involves the development of educational and enriching television programming. The sixth step calls for neighborhoods to provide children with safe places for play and learning. Finally, intergenerational programs that give children a sense of security and continuity must be implemented. Recommendations related to each of the seven steps are offered. Appendixes include the results of a 1991 survey of kindergarten teachers and technical notes concerning the survey. (Bc)
The learning industry : education for adult workers by Nell Eurich( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study focuses on the connection between education and the world of work and the urgency of the endeavor to educate the work force. Part I considers the resources for adult learning in the United States, with a focus on the major providers outside the traditional education system. Technological resources that can extend educational opportunities and reach more workers are then analyzed. Examples of each medium's use are given, and its limitations and effectiveness for instruction are charted. One new development is given special attention: artificial intelligence as an aid in training and education. Part ii describes workers' training opportunities. It looks first at the skilled trades and technical fields: construction workers, office workers, administrative assistants, information systems technicians, and factory workers encountering computer-integrated manufacturing systems. Next, the education of managers is considered. Finally, updating knowledge of advanced professionals is examined. Examples from various providers show contributions toward available opportunities. Part iii deals with those whom training programs fail to reach or serve adequately: dislocated workers, unemployed youth, immigrants and refugees, and welfare recipients. The report concludes that the issues call for public responsibility and action. Federal, state, and private initiatives are urged. Endnotes for each chapter and an index are appended. (Ylb)

A new agenda for higher education : shaping a life of the mind for practice by William M Sullivan( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In A New Agenda for Higher Education, the authors endorse higher education's utility for enhancing the practical as well as intellectual dimensions of life by developing a third, different conception of educational purpose. Based on The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching seminar that brought together educators from six professional fields with faculty from the liberal arts and sciences, A New Agenda for Higher Education proposes an educational aim of "practical reason," focusing on the interdependence of liberal education and professional training." "The book includes case studies of instructors from a wide array of disciplines including those who educate their students for practical responsibility. The authors document the process by which they learned to collaborate with one another across fields and, in the end, produced a new discourse of practical reason."--Jacket

This groundbreaking book explores the current state of doctoral education in the United States and offers a plan for increasing the effectiveness of doctoral education.

They challenge the traditional apprenticeship model and offer an alternative in which students learn while apprenticing with several faculty members. The authors persuasively argue that cre
