1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The publication presents the final report of the U.S. Office of Education citizen education project, focusing on major issues relating to the concepts of citizenship and citizen education. The objective is to contribute to a clear delineation of goals, strategies, and needs. The document is divided into five chapters. Chapter I explains the need for citizen education; how the concept of democratic citizenship evolved; and the history, evolution, and core elements and tensions of citizen education in the United States. Chapter ii discusses patterns of political learning among American children, adolescents, and adults focusing on both cognitive development and social learning. Chapter iii emphasizes the influence of the family and the peer group on children and adolescents and describes a variety of school-based programs in citizen education. Chapter iv discusses selected citizen education activities of the media, voluntary/community groups, business and labor unions, and all levels of the government. The concluding chapter reaffirms the need for citizen education, lists 15 developments occuring within the past five years, and recommends that there be national leadership in this area sustained by a genuine commitment to major improvement. It also recommends nine goals for leadership activities, including reestablishing citizen education as a basic goal of schooling, designing professional training experiences, coordinating school and community resources, and broadening the constituency served by citizen education.

Minimum Competency Testing and Local Schools by Karen S Dawson( Book )

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

This monograph reports on an exploratory investigation of the impact of minimum competency testing on local schools. The implementation and impacts of test requirements in three Missouri and four Ohio local school districts are studied through interviews with teachers and administrators and through the analysis of written materials on the test and curricula. The focus is on how the testing programs affected the curriculum, teaching, the allocation of resources, the relationships between school and community, and how teachers responded to the program. Both the intended and unintended consequences are examined. The findings suggest minimum competency tests affect different schools in varying ways. Test programs can be formulated and implemented in ways that create anxieties and resentments among teachers, or in ways that gain their support. Even the administration of a common state test will affect different schools differently. Several general factors determine the impact, including the following: (1) the form and objectives of the test; (2) the level of local community interest in student test performances; and (3) the expectations of school leaders with respect to student performances. The public interdistrict comparisons of test results greatly affected the impact of the Missouri test mandate. (Author/LMO)
