This report on alternative educational systems presents an overview of some current theories and proposals for educational reform as background to the description of development of three alternative schools in Toronto. The evolution of schools formed by groups outside the public system and established under the jurisdiction of the Toronto Board of Education is traced. Development is described in terms of the financial, legal and administrative arrangements made by the schools and the Board. Legal consideration of governance of these alternative programs, budget considerations, questions concerning teachers and pupils, and problems of building accomodations are discussed and an informal evaluation of the success of these programs is made. A bibliography includes references and suggestions for further reading on alternative schools. (SHM)
