Arnove, Robert F.; Strout, Toby
This paper analyzes the uses and misuses of alternative education programs for disruptive youth. It discusses their potential for assisting students who are unsuccessful in conventional school programs and points out their limitations and dangers. The paper describes the positive and negative aspects of existing alternative schools. It reviews what research indicates about the impact of alternatives, indicates lacunae in existing research, and suggests areas for further study. Four alternative programs are presented in detail. In a concluding section, the paper discusses a set of conditions that contribute to the success of alternative programs. (Author)
