Student Activism -- and Involvement in the Educational Program. Federation AdHoc Committee Report, January, 1970.
New Jersey State Federation of District Boards of Education, Trenton.
This report notes that (1) activism is preferable to apathy, (2) larger problems loom for schools that fail to involve parents and community, (3) board member and administrator rigidity can cause conflict, and (4) black and Spanish-speaking students have special problems. Recommendations for school administrators and teachers emphasize sincerity in responding to student demands; increased communication with parents, students, and community; increased consideration for student needs; and the importance of a knowledge of the law. Appendixes include (1) a model for local community study, (2) sample policies concerning student rights and participation, (3) grievance procedures for students and parents, (4) a teacher evaluation form for students, (5) "The Year of the Militant Student" by Dr. Carroll R. Johnson, and (6) a selected bibliography. (JF)
