Student Demonstrations and Confrontations.
Menninger, W. Walter
Student unrest in high schools as well as in colleges can be understood as the reflection of a basic problem in communication between students as senders and the school as the receiver-responder. Today's well-informed youth seek change in accord with their ideals but are not heard by those in authority who support traditional interests and values. The school board is responsible for selecting school administrators with leadership which attempts to understand, that can listen to students and not be threatened by conflict. Key principles include looking for latent issues in communications from students, recognizing the importance of expectations and mutual respect, and acknowledging the inevitability of change. (JK)
