Thanks Vince - I appreciate you responding! I started teaching in VT in
1968 and do remember many of the conversations. We're scrounging around
the DOE as well but thought it would be an interesting topic to float
out to the list since the Vermont design sort of set the stage for
thinking about technology supports that didn't even exist yet!
AND... Frank and I have been going back and forth since I made the post!
Best wishes to you!

I would guess that Frank Watson would be the most likely person to have
a copy. Frank, you out there?
But I can't believe the ed. dept. doesn't have one somewhere.
Those were interesting times in Vermont education. I remember Harvey
Scribner (the Ed commissioner) having to go up to Newport (or somewhere
near there) to explain why they shouldn't fire a new teacher (Sylvia
Hueter?) whom the board believed to be incompetent because you couldn't
hear a pin drop in her classroom as you could with her recently retired,
70-year-old, predecessor. That's what we were facing back then.
I think the Vermont Design changed education in Vermont more radically
than the introduction of computer technology did twenty to thirty years
