Citizen Involvement in the Public Schools. Trends for the 80's.
Simon, Toby R.
This is a resource booklet designed to facilitate the involvement of all citizens, not just parents, in the public schools. Citizen involvement in education is examined from an historical perspective, and legal mandates for citizen involvement in the state of New Jersey are outlined. Presented in the pamphlet are guidelines for the formation of citizen advisory committees and information on school site management. Three examples of citizen participation in schools from New Jersey are highlighted, along with additional examples drawn from Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Utah, and Delaware. The experiences of State mandated programs in Florida, South Carolina, and California are also explored. The Teaneck Parent Information Center, a community school project in New Jersey, is discussed and suggested as a possible resource. Then the functions and possibilities of community schools are reviewed. A list of informational sources, organizations and publications concludes the book. (APM)
