Toward Improved Communication and Cooperation Between Public and Nonpublic Schools.
Farquhar, Robin H.
Communication and cooperation between public and nonpublic schools might have potential for an immense and beneficial national impact, especially in confronting certain urban problems which nonpublic schools are better able to deal with than are public schools. At present there is a great lack of such communication and cooperation, due to a variety of legal, constitutional, structural, financial, philosophical, historical, and psychological barriers, the majority of which are largely emotional in origin. There are two basic kinds of activities which can be used to overcome these barriers: (1) Research on the barriers themselves and development of proper solutions, such as shared time or dual enrollment; and (2) preservice and inservice training programs to improve mutual understanding and increase contact between officials of public and nonpublic schools. School board members can play a vital role in overcoming the obstacles. Generally, they should be aware of what other related agencies are doing and provide the leadership in procuring available resources external to the public schools which may contribute to the achievement of the public schools' goals.
