Changing Patterns of School Governance.
Roberts, Donald A.
The author examines innovative governance patterns in 25 independent schools around the country. Among student concerns are student councils, honor committees, students in advisory capacities, faculty-student senates, all-school meetings, and constitutions. Faculty concerns cover faculty associations, salary scales, faculty representation on boards, faculty meetings, and faculty roles in governance. Effective systems that involve students in governance, the author asserts, are invariably honest, simple in structure, small, challenging, unique to themselves, constantly changing, and based on a belief that some of our students are morally capable of making important decisions.
