The Potential Role of the School as a Site for Integrating Social Services. A Report.
Baillie, Susan; And Others
Physically integrating social services with schools might be a feasible way of providing social services at a lower cost and/or might lead to improved social services. Examination of 10 school/social service complexes reveals an attempt to redefine the neighborhood at the same time enlarging and rendering it less parochial. The rapidly expanding community education movement offers new models for effecting environmental and individual improvement. The potential advantages and disadvantages of meshing social services with schools include analysis of dollar cost trade-offs; legal restrictions; racial integration; bureaucratic constraints; and educational impact. Six appendixes provide more detailed information on the 10 schools in the case studies; community education legislation and development; the college and community services; and law enforcement and mobile units as potential services to be included in neighborhood centers.
