Act Now; A Practical Guide to Starting Free Schools Based on the Experiences of the Rockland Project School Staff and Students.
Rockland Project School, Blauvelt, NY.
Four teachers who founded a free school summarize their experience for the benefit of other groups who might want to do so. Topics covered include the economics of running a school, finding a building, deciding what grades to begin with, assembling a staff, administrative structure, working with a local public school, and establishing a curriculum. Also included is a list of resources for free schools, including a bibliography, lists of supplies and companies which produce them, and lists of suggested art materials. The benefits and drawbacks of the free school, the kinds of children who do well or poorly there, and evaluation techniques are also discussed briefly. (JK)
