IMPACT OF THE COMMUNITY SCHOOL ON PREVENTION AND CONTROL OF DELINQUENCY, SCHOOL DROPOUTS, POVERTY, RACIAL SEGREGATION.
TOTTEN, W. FRED
THE COMMUNITY SCHOOL IS DESIGNED TO HELP PEOPLE LEARN HOW TO SOLVE THEIR OWN PROBLEMS, IT IS THE CENTER OF SERVICE FOR ALL THE PEOPLE OF A COMMUNITY REGARDLESS OF AGE, RACE, RELIGION, ETHNIC BACKGROUND, OR SOCIOECONOMIC CIRCUMSTANCES. SCHOOL FACILITIES AND SCHOOL PERSONNEL ARE AVAILABLE FOR SERVICE TO PEOPLE AT ALL TIMES OF THE DAY ON ALL DAYS OF THE YEARS. THE SCHOOL DAY IS COMPOSED OF SEVERAL SEGMENTS BEGINNING EARLY IN THE MORNING AND EXTENDING INTO THE NIGHT AS LONG AS NEEDED. THE SCHOOL IS IN OPERATION FOR EDUCATIONAL, RECREATIONAL, AND SOCIAL PURPOSES ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. PEOPLE WHO USE THE SCHOOL FACILITIES FOR EDUCATIONAL OR RELATED PURPOSES ARE CONSIDERED MEMBERS OF THE STUDENT BODY. THE CURRICULUM IS DESIGNED TO DEVELOP PEOPLE INTELLECTUALLY, CULTURALLY, AESTHETICALLY, PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY, SOCIALLY, MORALLY, AND ECONOMICALLY. THE COMMUNITY SCHOOL PROGRAM INFLUENCES DELINQUENCY, SCHOOL DROPOUTS, POVERTY, AND RACIAL SEGREGATION. IMPORTANT MEASURES IN PREVENTING AND CONTROLLING DELINQUENCY INCLUDE--RELATED HOME, PARENT, AND FAMILY PROGRAMS, RELATED COMMUNITY EFFORTS, MAINTENANCE OF PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH FACTORS, PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN, AND PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES FOR TEENAGERS. INSTRUCTIONAL AIDS, JOB PLACEMENTS, TUTORING, AND BIG-BROTHER PROGRAMS ENCOURAGE THE POTENTIAL DROPOUT TO REMAIN IN SCHOOL. THE COMMUNITY SCHOOL HELPS TO REDUCE POVERTY BY PROVIDING ACTIVITIES AND PROGRAMS WHICH MAKE POSSIBLE THE OBTAINING OF SUCH NECESSITIES AS FOOD, SHELTER, CLOTHING AND MEDICINE. THE COMMUNITY SCHOOL PROGRAM DESIGNS AND IMPLEMENTS SUCH ACTIVITIES AS PLANNING COMMITTEES AND URBAN RENEWAL FOR THE PURPOSE OF BRINGING ABOUT BETTER UNDERSTANDING AMONG MEN OF DIFFERENT RACIAL AND SOCIOECONOMIC GROUPS.
