Education and the next economy by Robert B Reich( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The features of a mass production-based economy are traced and contrasted within a competitive global marketplace in this political-economic analysis. The early reform movement's equation of "more" with "better" is no longer appropriate to meet the human resource needs of a nation undergoing profound economic changes. Older industrial economies such as the United States have two options: stabilize mass production by cutting costs, or increase the value of labor. Each path requires a different organization of work and type of work force. The second path relies on a work force capable of rapid learning in order to compete successfully in the world market. To prepare the nation's labor force, American education faces four challenges: (1) improve basic literacy and numeracy skills; (2) promote collaboration between specialized disciplines; (3) encourage teacher and student responsibility; and (4) avoid fragmentation of elite/less privileged groups.

Year-round schools by National Education Association of the United States( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication was developed in response to inquiries received from teachers and association leaders about the effect of a year-round school schedule on the livelihood and working conditions of teachers. It is intended to assist association leaders who deal with the problems related to (1) local negotiations or policy agreements for the membership, (2) helping leaders participate effectively with the local education authority in planning year-round schedules, (3) providing information that the individual member can use for an understanding of how year-round schools operate and what options exist in the various year-round plans, and (4) directing attention to ways in which year-round schooling can help provide improved programs for students. The publication includes a list of school districts which have, in whole or in part, changed to year-round schools. Also included are policy and caution statements from the California Teachers Association and the New Jersey Education Association, as well as an annotated bibliography on year-round schools.

Class size by Sherrell E Varner( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two basic reasons for concern over classroom size are the desire to optimize learning conditions and the tremendous impact of class size on school finances. The first reason of concern is not as well defined as the second. Rather than looking for the optimum figure, as has been done in the past, the question should read "Best classroom size for what ends and under what circumstances?" New methods of classroom organization and staff utilization which include team teaching, nongrading, flexible scheduling with large/small group and independent instruction, use of paraprofessional personnel, and vertical and horizontal grouping have been considered among the variables in recent analyses of classroom size. Related to these considerations are grade level classes from kindergarten through college. A literature review of this research is accompanied by recommendations, standards, and written policy statements of educational bodies. (Ln)
