ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Operation E.P.I.C., the "Experimental Program in Curriculum" in Portland, Maine. The program is an operational microcosm of a futuristic, student-centred, success-oriented educational system. The primary objective of the system is to design a program for underachievers in the junior high schools of Portland, to assist these students in making school a pleasant place to be and to help them in achieving educational success. The program also aims to help inner city disadvantaged youth of the King Junior High school district. The program is using a home economics-industrial arts core curriculum approach, a modular schedule, weekly teacher team planning sessions, large group instruction presentations and a modified ranking-reporting system.
