The Metro School. A Report on the Progress of Chicago's Experimental "School Without Walls."
Moore, Donald R.; And Others
The Metro School's educational program is built on these premises: 1) students must have control over the directions of their own learning; and, 2) resources of the city, including businesses, cultural institutions, and community organizations must become a laboratory for learning. Three of the documentary reports of the program are included in this publication: 1) the Metro Catalog which is a guide to resources, courses, and units for the student; 2) the First Semester which describes and analyzes the progress and problems of Metro from February to September 1970; and, 3) the Rationale and Program which was written September 1969 as the initial statement of goals and plans. In addition, newspaper articles about the school are included along with teacher selection and contract criteria, formative evaluation memos, and a statement of the organization and purpose of the Urban Research Corporation.
