Reschooling Society: A Conceptual Model.
MacDonald, James B.; And Others
Three professors of education examine constructively the kinds of environments, relationships, concepts of content and curriculums, evaluations, and settings for learning that the struggle for humane educational change requires. They propose an alternative model of education that emphasizes values and processes consistent with a commitment to an explicit humanistic ethical concept. The authors contend that learning is the exploring, integrating, and transcending of the immediate experience. Therefore, the learning environment should provide a wide range of options for students and teachers alike; opportunities for action and direct participation by students and teachers at all levels of decisionmaking; and for radically different, individually defined, emerging directions. The schooling model offered here as an alternative to the behavioral objectives model is rooted in explicit value choices and in consistently derived interpretations of the present cultural milieu.
