Pupil Services for the Inner-City "House" School.
Bowden, Delbert Anton
A model program of pupil services for Chicago's inner-city high schools is proposed. It is based on the house plan of school organization, wherein a large comprehensive high school is divided into small sub-divisions called houses. The deficiencies and unmet goals of Chicago's inner-city high schools (e.g., low attendance, high dropout rate) are briefly discussed. The house plan literature is exhaustively reviewed and is shown to effectively deal with the problems of Chicago's schools. The description of the model program is extensive and includes: (1) administrative organization; (2) relationships between goals, curriculum, student body, facilities and staff; (3) actual services, facilities and equipment needed for implementation; and (4) staff roles. The model is then compared with: (1) the current services in Chicago's high schools; (2) selected national, state and local guidelines; and (3) the shortcomings of Chicago's pupil services as described in the 1964 Hauser and Havighurst reports. Implications and recommendations conclude the dissertation. (TL)
