Student Activism-An Overview.
Heathman, James E.
In a 1969 survey, it was noted that 3 out of 5 principals reported some form of active protest in their junior and senior high schools. Although rural schools were less likely to encounter student protest than were urban or suburban schools, 53% of all rural schools reported some kind of activism or protest. Causes for protest ranged from school rules to current political issues. Constructive student involvement in school and community affairs was the most frequently proposed solution. Suggestions for ways to involve students and suggestions for administrative handling of different forms of student protest are offered. (JH)
