Alternate Learning: Sharing Innovative Programs and Practices.
Cummings, J. R.
Educators sometimes fail to adequately bring about school community collaboration. To do so, cooperative policy adjustments must be made, such as the supportive network created in the Dallas "Adopt-a-School" Program. Too, implementation adjustments must be made in the development of an action-learning program such as the flexible scheduling systems in the Metro-Atlanta Skills Center and the Program of Education and Career Exploration in Atlanta, Georgia. Programs such as these are created through policy adjustments that reflect the urban school district's commitment to the restoration of relevance in the education of American youth. Characteristics of 11 other programs are briefly listed in the paper. (Author/JM)
