The Case for the Small Schools.
A political writer presents the case for maintaining small schools in Minnesota and not entering into drastic consolidation of school districts as recommended by the Domian Report. Small School superintendents' replies to a survey, results of educational studies and reports, the work of small school projects, and quotations from prominent educators and other national figures are cited in pointing out the unique features of small schools. Flexibility in programing, an individualized approach to students, and an excellent teacher-student situation are among advantages discussed. It is concluded that in place of consolidation, local control should be maintained and the legislature should strengthen, encourage, and promote small schools. A bibliography and copy of superintendents' survey form concludes the document. (SW)
