Summary

This report describes the development of an organic curriculum in the public schools of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Superintendents of 13 school districts met with members of the U. S. Office of Education in May 1967 to establish the initial network of the curriculum overhaul program entitled Educational Systems for the Seventies (ES'70). This report covers a) the objectives as initially defined including a redefinition of educational goals and an overhaul of the educational process, b) the identification of the adjustments to the initial structure and redefinition of goals undertaken through the coordinator's organization, c) the functions and requirements of the coordinator, d) major activities and accomplishments of the program, and e) the dissemination activities. The conclusion suggests that this type of consortium has a greater impact upon education, especially in the area of staff improvement and dissemination activities, than do research and evaluation by institutions of higher education. Appendixes include learning packages and other documentary evidence to support the text. (Related documents SP 005 658 and SP 005 662 are ES'70 programs in other schools.) (MJM)
