Inside Comprehensive Schools.
In an effort to help parents and others understand changes being made in the English secondary schools, this book explains the reasons for abolishing the "11 plus" in favor of comprehensive education; the reasons for using child growth and development as the basis for modern educational methods; the school activities, organization, and goals; and some postschool possibilities for students. A final chapter describes how a local school district reorganized its secondary schools along comprehensive lines. An appendix provides an indication of the stand on reorganization taken by each local district. (MLF)
