Do You Need (or Want) Students on the School Board?
Place, Roger A.
In this paper the author discusses some of the new approaches for securing student input into school governance. Some of these approaches are the principal's cabinet, the superintendent's cabinet, and the student school board. The author feels, however, that at the present time there are too many attendant obstacles in making students full-fledged members of official school boards. These obstacles center on statutory regulations, high mobility rates for this age group, and adverse administrator reaction. The best plan of action would appear to be to retain, remodel, and revitalize the existing student councils, interrelating them with one of the newer approaches such as that of the student school board. Examples are drawn from developments in the secondary schools of the City of Norfolk; emphasis is placed on the need for structuring student input. (Author)
