School wars : resolving our conflicts over religion and values by Barbara B Gaddy( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Never before in the history of the United States has there been such profound debate over curricula and programs in the public schools. Politically active Christian conservatives, often identified as the "Religious Right," have charged there is a conspiracy to destroy America by subjecting our children to a too-liberal, anti-family, atheistic curriculum. And years of misunderstanding and criticism - at times extreme and inaccurate - have contributed to the belief that American public education simply doesn't work. School Wars takes an objective look at the controversy surrounding religion and education and offers educators, community leaders, and parents a better way to understand and respond to the differing world views that lie at the center of this ongoing debate. Drawing on their combined backgrounds of religious study and practice, as well as years of experience working in the field of education, the authors present research in educational theory and practice, highlight important court cases, and draw on philosophical and religious studies to reveal a foundation for understanding the conflicting world views at issue. They respond to attacks against educational programs, materials, and methods ranging from criticism of sex education and multiculturalism to challenges to contemporary fiction and classic literary works. They show how, if public schools are to serve children in all communities, the philosophies that underlie educational reform, the beliefs and concerns of critics, and relevant First Amendment rights and responsibilities must be understood - and techniques for a new consensus developed
Collaborative partnering with districts : problems encountered, lessons learned by Bryan R Goodwin( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the accomplishments of the Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL) district research partners. Informed by 2 years of collaborative experience, the report documents the process McREL used in selecting partner sites and guides future field-based research partnerships by discussing problems encountered and lessons learned regarding the establishment and maintenance of research partnerships. The ultimate goal of establishing the McREL district research partnerships was to explore collaborative-action research as a viable strategy for promoting systemic reform that leads to sustainable, improved achievement for all learners. The report outlines the selection of sites, the establishment of design teams, the design and process of research, and the evaluation of partnerships. The document concludes that collaborative partnerships can be used to move research findings into the field more quickly under the right conditions. Partnering, however, is a complex process and requires both partners to redefine their roles and usual work methods to accommodate a collaborative approach that involves individuals from different professional cultures. More sensitive methods, both for assessing a district's capacity for partnering and for creating a model that depicts the evolving nature of district-McREL partnerships, need to be developed. An annotated interview guide and interview summary assessment compose the bulk of the document. (Rjm)

Leadership for School Improvement. Revised Edition by Fran Mayeski( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph serves two purposes: (1) to stimulate further reflection and discussion among education leaders and policymakers to revitalize and strengthen the role that school leaders play in school reform; and (2) to assist researchers in identifying areas of future work. It synthesizes some of the most current literature pertinent to leadership and offers ideas and suggestions that may serve as the basis for further study about the leadership strategies that help bring about meaningful and long-lasting reform. The intent is to identify the major issues involved in developing leaders who sustain effective change. Leaders need to examine carefully whether the changes they are implementing are the best ones for their students in the long run. School leaders also need to balance competing demands and to create environments in which diverse viewpoints can come together to create a common vision for what schools should be. To make and sustain meaningful, long-lasting changes, the conception of what "leadership" means must be expanded from a narrow focus on improving the skills of a single man or woman to the building of the capacity of the community of teachers, students, parents, as well as administrators to lead.
