Alternatives to the Traditional High School.
Brooks, Elbert D.
The trend toward alternative programs and schools results from a broader understanding by educators of the need to tailor schools to the interests and needs of young people; and to the fact that students, parents, and citizens are demanding more relevant programs in a time of constant change. Many districts are striving for a comprehensive high school organization that could be considered an intermediate step to more dramatic departures in providing relevant learning experiences. Some of the more visible models or attempts at alternative school programing include comprehensive high schools, mini-schools, school-community based programs, schools-without-walls, open schools, and special interest and/or special problem schools.
