Toward a More Human School. A Report on Five Conferences Involving Students, Teachers, and Administrators.
Mallery, David; Heath, Douglas H.
A series of five conferences are reported here on the problem of making the school more human by increasing understanding, the sense of community, and communication between students, teachers, and administrators. The first conferences explored the areas of necessary change which 275 students and 175 adults wanted to examine in the four remaining conferences. As a result these conferences were devoted to the general theme of alienation and ways of communicating to overcome this estrangement. In addition, a special article by Douglas Health on alienation and the school is appended. (CWB)
