Some Organizational Issues Confronting Establishment of an International High School: A Working Paper.
This position paper on the concept of an international high school is primarily concerned with two questions: (1) What constitutes a "region"? (2) What are the ingredients of a "center"? Demographic changes and declining resources are serious obstacles confronting efforts to create new institutions, and logistical demands are underrated by proponents of the international high school. Thus attempts to provide different forms of secondary education for adolescents will require involvement of parents and other residents. Perhaps an updated version of the Danish Folk School, making extensive use of instructional technology and telecommunications, is one image of future prospects, but the impact of such a plan on organizational structures is not well understood and deserves separate study. The paper concludes that debates regarding the education of children and youth are in reality debates about priorities and realities of the adult world. (TE)
