Practical Tips on Handling the Community Power Crunch. A Case Study of the Niles Township High Schools.
Colver, Arthur C.
This paper discusses the crisis of confidence in the nation's schools, argues that the basic premise of school management rests on the concept that schools exist for students and their parents, and describes the public challenge to one school system. The author outlines the steps taken by the Niles Township, Illinois, Board and community to provide a school environment that places equal stress on both the personal and the social development of students. A major theme of the paper is that it is at the management level that the community of students and parents is able to address itself most effectively to change and improvement in the schools.
