A Review of Three Alternative Schools in Greater Cleveland: Promising Practices and Feasibility Issues.
Fleming, Elyse; And Others
The intent of the evaluation studies reported here was two-fold: (1) to determine the promising practices of three alternative schools in Greater Cleveland, and (2) to determine which of those practices identified as promising would be feasible for incorporation into the public schools. Each substudy includes an overview, a description of the specifics of the design utilized, a reporting of data collected, a listing of the promising practices and limitations revealed through data analysis, and a section dealing with feasibility issues surrounding implementation by the public schools. The first of the schools reviewed, the United Independent Schools of East Cleveland, currently offers a preprimary and elementary program for 149 children ages 3-12, utilizing the Montessori method in the preprimary program and the Leicestershire "open" class approach in the elementary program. The Urban League Street Academy has sought to demonstrate that high school dropouts can and will complete high school. Its program has centered on developing the basic academic subjects to serve the high school dropout. The Cleveland Urban Learning Community is a "high school--without-walls." The emphasis, in a global sense, is to create an atmosphere to allow growth toward ends decided by the students. (Author/JM)
