This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a report containing proposals for the organization of secondary schools, the establishment of school councils, the maintenance of peaceful working conditions and the provision of legal security. Secondary schools should have an internal organization for dealing with activities between teachers, pupils, and others involved in school life; each group should be permitted to make suggestions and to participate in the decision-making process. The school council composed of three teachers, three students, and three members elected by the municipal council, should be the new administrative organ. Certain standards of behavior for students are proposed; teachers involved in student offenses should not be the ones to inflict penalties. A student should have the right to appeal to the school council in the event of his disagreement with the penalty inflicted by the headmaster. Other matters included in the report include abolishing the grade in carefulness, changes to the punishment book, expulsion of students, pregnant students, school social workers, and other matters.
