Mini-Manual for a Free University.
Magid, Larry; King, Nesta
This book catalogues the free university/alternative school movement's exploration of ways education can be organized, directed, evaluated, and modified by its consumers. Emphasis is placed on the purpose of free universities, unlearning, course organizing, credit, the mechanics of organizing courses for credit, publicity, funding, bureaucracy, spin-off projects, and the role of the free university in educational reform. Case studies review the Center for Participant Education at Florida State University and the University for Man at Kansas State University. A resource directoy is presented including lists of people, places, and things that have operated successfully within the broad parameters of the reform movement. (MJM)
