The Human Relations School.
Fox, Robert S.; Lippitt, Ronald
As an expansion of ED 026 320, the model for a Human Relations School sketched in this document is an attempt to answer these questions: What would it be like if a school were to see itself as a laboratory for living and learning in which the test that is known about human interaction were utilized? How would it be organized? What would be its priorities? Could human relationships themselves be a focus for inquiry? In what ways would it be different from the schools we now work in? Seven goals identified and developed with illustrative examples of mechanisms or activities which may be instrumental in achieving the objectives: 1) to achieve involvement and collaboration; 2) to develop and maintain continuing inservice education programs; 3) to recruit, develop and utilize a great variety of human resources; 4) to mobilize and utilize creatively resources of technology, time, and space in such ways as to foster human relations values and goals; 5) to develop and maintain an open and supportive system of communication horizontally and vertically; 6) to develop and implement a curriculum in human relations knowledge, values and skills; and, 7) to achieve community-wide involvement in procedures for continuous evaluation and review of the educational program.
