Administrative Guidelines for High School Activism.
Dal Santo, John, Ed.
This report presents guidelines proposed and utilized by practicing teachers and administrators for coping with student activism. Included are discussions of the causes of student activism, the indicators of student unrest, and the preparation for the protest, including what to do when violence occurs and guidelines for longrange planning. The author concludes that public schools should provide youth with the experiences of the due process procedure in resolving individual and group differences, thus teaching them to accept social discipline as expressed in tradition, custom, and law. He also maintains that students should be involved in the intellectual life of the school including representation on faculty and parent-teacher committees. Appendixes contain sample policy statements for dealing with student disruptions as set forth by the Los Angeles Public School Districts' director of public information and the superintendent, and the Los Angeles Police Department.
