Responding to Student Unrest: A Guide for Administrators and Teachers.
House, James; Miller, William
The aim of this essay is to help educators understand, respond to, and survive student militancy. The author analyzes the problem of student unrest; discusses programs for reducing militancy; and explains why student involvement is necessary and how it helps accomplish the purposes of education, stimulates interest, and reduces dropouts and alienation. One section of the presentation is given over to a discussion, from both legal and moral viewpoints, of students rights as citizens and the prerogatives of staff, administrators, and school boards. The essay concludes with an examination of the future of student unrest and a discussion of what can and should be done, in cooperation with students, to help solve the problem. Also included are three case histories of educators who have experienced student militancy and a 26-item bibliography. (Author)
