Community Schools. Educational Management Review Series Number 24.
Baas, Alan M.
This review surveys documents and journal articles previously announced in RIE, ERIC's monthly abstract catalogs, dealing with the growth of community schools. The community school is perceived to be the vehicle for the larger concept of community education -- a philosophy of education and society that radically changes the role of the public school in the community. The literature views the community school to be an educational, recreational, and cultural neighborhood center where adults and young people alike may use its facilities or join its programs, and where all members of the community could be involved in its decisionmaking processes. Included are discussions of the concept, the implementation methods, and the personnel of the community school. (Author)
