Decision-Making in Alternative Secondary Schools. A Report from a National Conference. (Woodstock, Illinois, February 1972.)
Center for New Schools, Inc., Chicago, IL.; United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The "pioneers" of the alternative school movement (schools that have now been in existence from two to five years) have experienced many difficulties in putting their ideas into practice. This report contains a discussion of a conference that focused on the difficulties that have been encountered in involving students, staff, and parents in decisionmaking. Participants at the conference, drawn from many and varied kinds of alternative schools, attempted to develop generalizations about shared decisionmaking that might be of use to other alternative schools. The report contains many of these generalizations and discusses other problems facing alternative schools. (JF)
