What legally constitutes an adequate public education? : a review of constitutional, legislative, and judicial mandates by Martha M McCarthy( Book )

5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the law governing the definition of educational adequacy is still evolving, partial definitions can be gleaned from various state and federal laws and regulations prescribing standards for schools and from judicial interpretations of constitutional and statutory provisions. This document presents the results of such an analysis. After delineating the research questions and procedures guiding the study, and the definitional distinctions between the closely related concepts involved, the report examines relevant litigation. The cases reviewed affect state school finance schemes, the rights of students with special needs, and parental control over educational choices. State legislative and regulatory activity defining adequacy and establishing adequacy standards is described next. The nature of school funding laws, eight states' statutory definitions of adequacy, and the application of program requirements, accountability mandates, and minimum competency standards are covered. The federal role in defining and establishing adequacy standards is addressed last, with special attention paid to regulations regarding handicapped students, bilingual, compensatory, and vocational education, and research, development, and dissemination activities. A final chapter summarizes the findings, discusses obstacles to defining adequacy conclusively, and comments on prospects for the 1980s. Appendices list relevant court cases and pinpoint pertinent provisions of state constitutions. (Author/PGD)
Gender influences in classroom interaction by Louise Cherry Wilkinson( Book )

Teaching reading in the social studies by John P Lunstrum( Book )

2 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Approaches to improving students' skills in reading social studies materials are presented in this book. The first chapter discusses reading problems and orientations to reading in the social studies. The remaining three chapters deal with three problem areas: making a suitable match between pupil reading abilities and instructional materials, providing motivation to read in social studies classes, and improving comprehension in the reading of social studies material. Within each problem area, selected strategies, procedures, and resources suitable to different grade levels are identified and described, and where appropriate, detailed activities are suggested. The appendixes review relevant research, describe methods for assessing readability of a text, discuss the use of personal classroom journals in the social studies, present an example of a discovery episode that may be used in social studies instruction, and show how to apply Hugh Rank's "doublespeak" schema to the social studies. An annotated bibliography of related items is included. (Gw)
Minority students : a research appraisal by Meyer Weinberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a comprehensive review of research on minority students and desegregation. An interdisciplinary approach which covers all major approaches to the problem and which presents contrasting viewpoints on school integration and minority student education is used. Effecting change in the classroom and the schools is the central concern of this book. Beyond the usual exclusive concern with subject areas which can be manipulated statistically, this tome includes the perspectives of historians, lawyers, economists, and even non-specialists. Factors treated at some length include the historical and legal background of the education of minority groups, the ideology of racism, a continuing reexamination and questioning of prevailing views of the role of social class and race in learning, and the impact of minority communities upon the schools. Separate chapters deal with Spanish-surnamed and American Indian students. The impact of schooling is examined in the areas of academic achievement, self-concept and aspirations, and the relationships of students with their peers and with their teachers. The findings presented in a conclusion to this work indicate that desegregation works for both white and black children. It narrows the achievement gap between them. In addition, minority children gain a more realistic conception of their vocational and educational future through integrated settings. Positive racial attitudes by black and white students develop as they attend school together. This book is a companion volume to another book titled, "a Chance to Learn" which includes fuller documentation on the historical and legal materials that are cited in this volume. (Author/AM)

Competency-based education : beyond minimum competency testing by Ruth S Nickse( Book )

5 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book comprised of six chapters, multiple aspects of competency based education (cbe) are discussed contextually by various authors in terms of the current educational climate wherein the primary emphasis is upon learning outcomes rather than the process of learning itself. To illuminate the notion of competence, Chapter 1 presents: definitions of competence from the vantages of several disciplines; four basic principles underlying the development of competence; factors influencing competency; issues pertinent to program development and; a model of competence. Literature is reviewed in Chapter 2 in order to define cbe. The authors propose that cbe is essentially an instructional paradigm assuming different programmatic forms in different contexts. Appropriate instructional strategies are examined in Chapter 3. Guidelines herein suggested for planners also have implications for teachers. Thirteen cbe programs currently being implemented throughout the nation are presented in the following chapter. Concentrating on the evaluation issue of how competencies can be assessed, Chapter 5 discusses conditions affecting role based assessment. The final chapter notes that minimum competency testing constitutes a major component of secondary education and that few schools have realized the potential for development. Future implications are suggested. (Author/AEF)
The teacher-researcher : how to study writing in the classroom by Miles Myers( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written for teachers who want introductions to conducting school assessments and to studying features of writing, this book is intended (1) to provide ways for teachers to analyze writing samples and the writing process for school or program assessment, and (2) to promote the development of teacher research among kindergarten through grade 12 teachers by providing examples of different ways teachers can study writing in their classrooms. The first chapter presents an overview of procedures in teacher research. The next four chapters introduce various theoretical frameworks within which researchers have been working, with each chapter discussing a different level of analysis--syntax, text, information processing, and social context. The final chapter focuses on errors, teaching practices, and student attitudes toward writing. Appendixes contain information on the results of teacher research, evaluation designs for practitioners, sampling and statistical tests, and using expressive writing to teach biology. (El)
State legal standards for the provision of public education : an overview by Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law( Book )

12 editions published between 1974 and 1978 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report and its appendixes are the products of a 50-state study of current legal standards for public elementary and secondary education and represent a summary and comparative analysis of the law as it exists in the states today. State education policy-makers--state legislators and staff of legislative reference services, department of education personnel, university faculty members, lawyers and jurists, members of private educational organizations--should find the study useful both in re-examining the education laws of their own state and in developing new or alternative mechanisms for providing high quality public education. The bulk of the report consists of a series of 20 comparative charts and the descriptive materials that relate to them. The charts are designed to provide a quick method for comparing the manner in which each state treats a particular subject. The 20 areas covered in the charts are admission requirements, adult education, attendance enforcement agent, attendance requirements, curriculum, extracurricular activities, grade organization, guidance and counseling programs, high school graduation requirements, individual pupil records, inservice training, libraries, promotion requirements, pupil load/class size, pupil-teacher ratio, pupil transportation, safety and health requirements, school calendars, teacher personnel policies, and textbooks.
