This book is intended to serve as a practical guidebook for school administrators who wish to implement a management-by-objectives (mbo) system in their school or school system. The author discusses the key factors necessary for a successful mbo system and explains how to apply them most effectively. An attempt is made to present a thorough, easy-to-use plan suitable for use by administators who have had no experience with mbo systems. Major topics discussed include school and college management by objectives, identifying educational problems through needs assessment, the chief executive's performance priorities, establishing operational objectives, time-phased action steps, operational management and execution of action step plans, staff involvement and participative management, starting an mbo system, and the chief executive's role in mbo.

Career education : the USOE perspective by Terrel H Bell( Book )

4 editions published between 1974 and 1981 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Center for Vocational and Technical Education initiated the Occasional Paper Series to provide educators and other interested individuals with information dealing with critical issues and problems surrounding the education of human beings. The interest of the center in the entire career education concept stimulated it to include in this series recent views on career education of Dr. T.H. Bell, U.S. Commissioner of Education, and the newly derived career education policy of the United States Office of Education as explained by Dr. Kenneth B. Hoyt, Associate Commissioner, Office of Career Education, Office of Education. Dr. Bell's paper cites examples of the unanticipated success of career education; expresses hopes that career education will be primarily a State and local matter; and points to the need for work to be done in the areas of improved quality, evaluation, and implementation, particularly at the high school level and among special groups. Dr. Hoyt's paper proposes career education as the response to criticisms of the present educational system, through the use of the concept of work. Basic concept assumptions are offered which will represent a philosophic base for career education, programmatic assumptions, suggestions for implementation, and specific learner outcomes which will involve basic educational policy changes.

Parenting and the public schools : remarks, before the annual convention of the National Congress of Parents and Teachers, Atlantic City, N.J., June 2, 1975 by Terrel H Bell( Book )

2 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States educational system has a responsibility to provide adults with the necessary education to raise healthy, productive children. Learning how to be a parent does not appear to be a routine part of the growing-up process today. Therefore, in order to maximize the essential early development of children, parenthood training becomes increasingly important. People can be taught to become effective parents by teaching them about child growth and development. It is suggested that this training should take place in the secondary school since this is often the last formal education many young citizens will receive. Several existing programs which train people to become informed parents are described. Additional programs are needed through which parent education and child development services could be delivered to communities through neighborhood schools. (Brt)
An educator looks at parenting : remarks, before Regional Parenting Conference sponsored by National Congress of Parents and Teachers and National Foundation-March of Dimes, Washington, D.C., Mar. 25, 1976 by Terrel H Bell( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author speaks to the issue of the need in our society to prepare teenage boys and girls to become effective parents. He finds such preparation crucial for the growth and development of the individual infant, and thus is supportive of efforts to ensure that future parents have the skill and understanding to meet the social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs of their youngsters. Changing family life patterns are discussed in relation to the effect they are having on today's children, and statistics are given to illustrate the waning effectiveness of the home in providing a stable environment. The author also addresses the social need for adults who are prepared mentally, physically and emotionally to have children. A list of basic needs for a comprehensive parenthood education program is provided, and a number of federal initiatives designed to meet some of these needs are briefly reviewed. (Sjl)
New outlooks for vocational education by Terrel H Bell( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The accomplishments and activities of the National and State Advisory Councils, the implications of the Vocational Education Amendments of 1976, and opportunities and problems now facing vocational education are discussed. The author comments that the amendments (1976) are primarily concerned with defining the Federal role in vocational education, and that other legislative administrative efforts would include simplifying the administration of program funds, construction of additional facilities, and improved planning. Quality control, equal opportunity, data collection, teacher recruitment, and program effectiveness are recognized as major challenges facing vocational education. (Tm)
Increasing access to postsecondary education - the Federal role : remarks, before the 35th International Conference on Education of the International Bureau of Education, Geneva, Switzerland, Aug. 29, 1975 by Terrel H Bell( Book )

2 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Postsecondary" education, that is, education beyond the 12th-grade level, includes vocational, technical, trade, and business schools as well as two- and four-year colleges. The institutions may be public, private, or proprietary. Emphasis on the wide spectrum stems from a national tenet--that there is honor and dignity in work whether it is solely intellectual, primarily physical, or a blend of the two, by the same token, the integrity of learning, of job preparation, can be as valid outside the traditional world of academe as it is within and from a belief in freedom of individual choice. In recent years, provision of postsecondary opportunity for all the nation's youth has been a national educational priority, and the largest single share of government support for higher learning has been used to reach this goal. Federal assistance to higher education began more than a hundred years ago with land grants for the establishment of colleges to teach the agricultural and mechanical arts. It continued with the G.I. Bill; the Education Act of 1958; the Higher Education Act of 1965, which established the Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant, the College-Work Study Program, Guaranteed Student Loan Program; and the 1972 Amendments to the Higher Education Act, establishing a new Basic Educational Opportunity Grant Program that reaffirms the principle of postsecondary education as a right, not a privilege, which must be accessible to all who qualify. Together, the various federal programs help several million needy students each year. (Author/KE)
Higher education management in today's world : remarks, before meeting of the Board of Directors of the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems, Washington, D.C., Apr. 8, 1976 by Terrel H Bell( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A few key trends in higher education and the current federal philosophy of support to higher education are addressed. It is noted that higher education is becoming increasingly accessible to all segments of the population and that increasing numbers of students put priority on learning skills they need for employment rather than on a general education. More people beyond the usual college age of the late teens and early twenties are enrolling in postsecondary education, and the idea of lifelong education has spread. Federal efforts have been concentrated on equalizing opportunity, improving the quality and relevance of education, and providing limited general support to state and local education agencies, developing postsecondary institutions, and adult and vocational education. The financial plight of higher education and the impact of inflation is discussed, as illustrated most starkly by the small private liberal arts colleges in the U.S. Variables that will affect the future of higher education are seen as the federal education policy, the economy, the nature of society, and ethnicity and social class.

School improvement through developing leadersip capacity : remarks, before Council of Chief State School Officers' Institute, Laconia, N.H., July 31,1975 by Terrel H Bell( Book )

2 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

School administrators on all levels are facing new challenges and demands for new skills and capabilities. More and more is being demanded of education as society becomes more and more complex. As more is demanded, the responsive capabilities and leadership sophistication of school administrators become critical factors in meeting the challenge of education in modern America. The school administrator must be accepted as a leader, and he must earn this acceptance through his performance. Very little money is spent to develop leadership for the vast educational enterprise that spends $108 billion a year and involves three of every ten Americans on a full-time basis. More than $2 billion a year in federal money is spent on undergraduate grants, loans, and fellowships, but the practicing school administrator has no access to a sabbatical, grant, or fellowship. School administrators should be offered more renewal opportunities--more experiences that will bring new insight and fresh ideas to the school. For it is hard for any organization to exceed the quality of its leadership. (Author/JG)
