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

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 610 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 )

6 editions published in 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 11 chapters comprising this work focus on the interactional influences that may be related to differential classroom experiences for males and females. The effects of contextual factors, teacher characteristics, and student characteristics are investigated. Addressed primarily to researchers, this information should prove useful to teachers, educational policymakers, and others who want to insure that every child is offered educational opportunities regardless of gender. Chapters are the following: (1) "Overview" (J. Lindow, C.B. Marrett, and L.C. Wilkinson) which introduces the topics of gender and teacher-student interaction, gender and peer interaction, and research on gender in the classrooms; (2) "Autonomous Learning Behavior: a Possible Explanation of Gender-Related Differences in Mathematics" (E. Fennema and P. Peterson); (3) "Listening to Adolescents: Gender Differences in Science Classroom Interaction" (L.W. Morse and H.M. Handley); (4) "Race-Gender Status, Classroom Interaction, and Children's Socialization in Elementary School" (L.

Blumenfeld); (6) "Interactions of Male and Female Students with Male and Female Teachers" (J. Brophy); (7) "Gender Differences in Preschool Classrooms: The Effects of Sex-Typed Activity Choices" (A.C. Huston and C.J. Carpenter); (8) "Some Determinants and Consequences of Sex Segregation in the Classroom" (M.E. Lockheed); (9) "Sex Differences and Sex Segregation in Students' Small-Group Communication" (L.C.

Tax wealth in fifty states by D. Kent Halstead( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in Undetermined and English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study presents a scheme for yearly, comparative, computation of state and local government tax capacity and effort. Figures for all states for fiscal year 1975 are presented in extensive tables. The system used is a simplified version of the Representative Tax System, which identifies tax bases, determines national average tax rates for those bases, and uses these figures to determine each state's reasonable taxing capacity. The system also provides for comparing actual taxing performance against these capacities to reveal relative tax effort. The methodology for using these measures is investigated in the remainder of the document. Appendices on fiscal capacity and revenue requirements, problems in tax capacity measurement, and personal income as a gauge of fiscal capacity are also included. (Author/PGD)

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

2 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 466 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 457 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 )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 432 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 429 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)

Reading and the law by Robert J Harper( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seven articles in this book examine the complex issues raised by new laws that affect reading instruction. The following topics are discussed: the origins of judicial activism in education; the decline in support for public education and in esteem for educators; reflected by the shift in responsibility for educational policy making; the concept of a provider/consumer relationship in the teaching of reading; major issues involved in establishing reading as a graduation requirement; the usefulness and validity of three classes of reading definitions in establishing accountability; the need for state legislation requiring school districts to acquire, consider, and where appropriate, implement research findings concerning promising instructional strategies; and the lack of a common understanding and agreement about the nature of reading. The book includes an extensive compendium of recent state education codes and laws affecting reading instruction, which provide examples of the ways state legislatures are addressing the question of reading and language arts requirements through legislation.
