ABSTRACT
The article focuses on educational planning programs in Minnesota. Six school systems in Minnesota decided three years ago to undertake a long-term examination of the educational programs, along with whatever curriculum adjustments the study revealed desirable. These schools are now launched upon the fourth year of the project. The schools have followed a general plan or procedural steps based upon the tested experiences of those systems which have made notable progress in curriculum improvement. Since the project assumed local responsibility for the details of the study, the faculties of each school were organized for work. Each school set up a directive committee of from five-to-fifteen members, representative of the major divisions and interests of the schools. The number on the directive committees was determined roughly by the size of the school and its varied interest groups. One of the staff was chosen as the leader. The first year the schools undertook a study of the types of curriculum reorganizations which were taking place throughout the United States.
