Lickona, Thomas, Ed.; And Others
Educational Alternatives: A Sourcebook, v1 n1-2 Spring-Fall 1973
This document is a collection of essays on open education, the results of the Conference on Open Education held in April 1972 at the State University of New York College at Cortland. The title of the conference, "Increasing Alternatives for Teachers and Children," suggests the underlying theme for all the essays in this volume: respect for persons. As the preface states, open education is a moral statement about the worth, the individuality, the dignity, and the human rights of everyone involved in the educational enterprise. There are 26 essays in this volume, covering topics such as open classrooms versus open schools, teacher centers as an open approach to changine schools, structure in the open classroom, record keeping in the open classroom, the informalization of higher education, and open education in a closed society.
