No More Public School.
Bennett, Harold Zina
Frustrated by the public schools, the author took his child out of one and set up his own school. This book tells other parents how to do the same. The step-by-step account explains how to take a child out of the public school; set up a plan for the home instruction of a child; choose a more complex educational plan; set up a curriculum for any number of children; establish a group as an "approved" private school; establish the school as a legal corporation; establish the school as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization; set up the business end of the school operation; interview parents, teachers, students, authorities; survive in spite of conflicts with neighbors, authorities, parents, students, and comrades; choose a leader; keep going after the first year; get help when you need it, and learn how to ask for help. It suggests models for schools, such as a mobile school, storefront school, underground school, or big private school. Plans for laying out a school's groundplan and building equipment are also included. As a realistic guide, the book also includes a chapter, "what to do if your school folds." (JK)
