A Summary of Research on School Dropouts and Implications for Special Education. Stay in School Initiatives, Book 1 by G. Ronald Neufeld( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication, the first in a series of three monographs on school dropout research, is designed to provide background information as a foundation for local programs planning throughout the Canadian provinces. Topics in this monograph include definitions of dropouts, characteristics of persons who drop out of school, factors that identify at-risk students, characteristics of programs or approaches that have met with some success in preventing at-risk students from leaving school before graduation, and implications for special education. Programs that offer possible remedies to the dropout problem are discussed under three broad categories: :"fix the child, ""fix components of the system," and "restructure the system."

Innovations in Distance Education Applied to the Professional Development of Teachers. (A Canadian Perspective) by G. Ronald Neufeld( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents a definition of distance education and a rationale for it both in pragmatic, problem-solving terms and in relation to a larger view of society. The geographic, political, educational, and technological context of distance education in Canada is then discussed. Traditional correspondence courses, satellite-delivered credit and non-credit courses, teleconferencing, and computer networking/electronic mail for the continuing professional education of teachers in British Columbia are described. A course on the study of exceptional children, which was broadcast live via satellite, is used as a case study to illustrate issues in course production and design, production standards, and cost. The results of pre- and post-course questionnaires covering participant characteristics, attitudes toward exceptional children, attitudes toward telecourses, program quality, live interactive television versus passive viewers, course requirements, and preferred viewing time are summarized, and telecourses are compared with traditional classroom instruction. A discussion of future directions for distance education concludes the paper. (29 references) (mes)

Community : School Partnerships. Stay in School Initiatives, Book 2 by G. Ronald Neufeld( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication, the second in a series of three monographs on solutions to the dropout problem in Canada, adopts the view that the "cracks" in human services systems could be "mortared" at the level of local schools with services and programs that include academic, social, emotional, and vocational elements. The monograph acknowledges that schools and teachers are second in importance only to home and parents in the development of children and youth and recognizes that schools and teachers alone cannot offer the broad range of educational and social services that students need. It identifies the need for coordination of services and collaboration between education and other organizations as a top priority. The monograph also identifies potential partners in education; suggests procedures and strategies to recruit and involve the community in schools; and outlines possible roles and functions for individuals and interest groups in the community, such as school boards, teachers, business/industry, media, and universities.

Local Planning Process and Model Goals and Objectives. Stay in School Initiatives, Book 3 by G. Ronald Neufeld( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet, the third and last in a series of monographs on solutions to the problem of school dropouts, is designed to provide guidance for local organizations to address the needs of students at risk of dropping out. It sets forth the goals and objectives of a planning approach that illustrates how local communities could organize to increase graduation rates. The goals, listed in order of importance as determined by representatives of the education field who participated in two national forums of Canadian educators, include: (1) collaboration between organizations and coordination of services; (2) broad review of purpose and goals of education aimed at renewal/restructuring of education; (3) definition of dropout and at-risk students; (4) focus on prevention in the early years; and (5) development of schools' ability to respond as needed to individual students.
