Lounsbury, John H.
Clearing House, v73 n4 p193 Mar-Apr 2000
Argues that "middle schools" (marked by inclusiveness, cooperation, and commitment to the general welfare) are at risk, pressured by those who believe school should be utilitarian. Argues the purported academic failure of the middle school is because middle school tenets have not been sufficiently implemented, and that middle school educators bear responsibility to continue their advocacy for middle schools.
