REMOTE HIGH SCHOOLS--THE REALITIES.
FORD, PAUL; AND OTHERS
THIS STUDY WAS CONDUCTED AT TWO URBAN HIGH SCHOOLS AND THREE SMALL, REMOTE HIGH SCHOOLS IN THE STATE OF WASHINGTON IN AN EFFORT TO INVESTIGATE STUDENT-TEACHER ACTIVITIES AND RELATIONSHIPS, AND TO EXPLORE, IN DEPTH, ANY EDUCATIONAL ADVANTAGES AND/OR DISADVANTAGES ACCRUING TO THE SMALL HIGH SCHOOL. GENERAL FINDINGS OF THE STUDY INDICATED THAT THERE IS GREATER OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENT-TEACHER INTERACTION IN A SMALL HIGH SCHOOL, BUT LACK OF FACILITIES AND SUBJECT OFFERINGS HAVE A TENDENCY TO PRODUCE A KIND OF EDUCATIONAL DEPRIVATION IN COMPARISON WITH THE LARGER HIGH SCHOOL. THE STUDY RECOMMENDED THAT IT BE DETERMINED WHICH REMOTE HIGH SCHOOLS WERE ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY, THE REST TO BE CONSOLIDATED, AND STATE FUNDS BE MADE AVAILABLE TO BRING THE FACILITIES AND CURRICULAR OFFERINGS OF THE REMOTE HIGH SCHOOLS MORE IN LINE WITH THOSE OF THE LARGER HIGH SCHOOLS.
