The School in the Middle: Divided Opinion on Dividing Schools. A Center Reader.
Barnett, Lawrence J., Ed.; And Others
This collection of readings evolved in response to a need by educators and community groups for justification for various grade reorganization plans. While the compilation attempts to focus on a timely educational topic, it reflects varying attitudes toward change on the part of the individual contributors as well as their differences in regional focus. Those authors concerned specifically with education in large urban areas discuss grade reorganization as it relates to racial and ethnic pupil mixes. Descriptive materials for presentation to boards of education or community groups and cost reference articles are included. The material is arranged under three broad titles: Intermediate Education/A Range of Views; Plans, Proposals, Practices; and New York City/A Case Study.
