Intergovernmental Relations and the Governance of Education by Russell B Vlaanderen( Book )

4 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The roles of each level of government, Federal, State, and local, in providing quality education and equal educational opportunity were studied. To determine the roles, the opinions of informed and concerned political and educational leaders were sought through the administration of a questionnaire and the holding of a conference. Through these means, answers to the following six questions were sought: (1) What are the responsibilities of each level of government to (a) assure every child a minimum level of educational opportunity, (b) upgrade the quality of education throughout the country, and (c) stimulate school systems to meet categories of national need? (2) Can the role of each level of government be rationalized and generally accepted? (3) How can responsibility and accountability be applied at each level? (4) What are the appropriate relationships between the executive and school boards, commissions, and the chief state school officer? (5) How can the concept of new federalism be applied to the educational field? (6) Can a mechanism for incorporating the views of each level be established for educational policy development and for identification of national priorities? If so, what would be the best mechanism. Tabulations of the responses by region and respondent's position are provided, as are the conference papers. Findings, conclusions, and recommendations are given.

Testing for Teacher Certification. Issuegram 7 by Russell B Vlaanderen( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public concern about the effectiveness of education institutions and the accompanying loss of public confidence in the nation's schools has revealed itself in a growing complaint that too many teachers cannot teach. This criticism, while not fully substantiated, has resulted in efforts to establish means for testing teacher competency, seen as one of many ways to improve education. Presently, 20 states require or will require, by a definite date in the future, applicants for teacher certification to be tested for competency in either the basic skills, subject matter knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, or some combination of these. State policies, rooted in the concern for educational improvement, are also concerned with the issue of testing teachers--whether or not it will result in, or contribute to, the improvement of education. Perhaps there are other viable alternatives to teacher candidate testing that will contribute as well or better to educational improvement. Some suggestions include: (1) raising standards for admission to teacher education programs; (2) strengthening the institutional accreditation process; (3) requiring internships before granting certification; (4) requiring continuing education on the job; (5) reforming teacher education programs; (6) lengthening preservice education; and (7) increasing teacher salaries.

State Minimum Competency Testing Programs Review and Resources. Federal Efforts in Minimum Competency Testing. Final Report by Russell B Vlaanderen( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Education Amendments of 1978, Part B of the Elementary Secondary Education Act Title IX were implemented because of the growing concern about illiteracy, test score decline, and educational accountability. They establish funds and technical assistance to state and local education agencies for program implementation and test development. Both House and Senate Reports stressed that the federal government is not to specify minimum standards, nor require certain tests; nor is the receipt of aid to be conditional on adopting minimum standards. A bill introduced by Representative Robert Mottl, requiring states to establish minimum standards was defeated. (The House and Senate committee reports, the Mottl bills, Federal Register regulations, and excerpts from regional hearings are appended.) (CP)
