The Alum Rock Voucher Program.
Southwest Network, Hayward, CA.
During the 1972-73 school year, the Alum Rock Voucher Program, an experimental program, was begun in 6 neighborhood schools in East San Jose, California. The program was designed to allow greater parent participation and choice in their children's education. This illustrated, bilingual pamphlet, written as a story told by 2 caricatures, discusses the $7 million program. The pamphlet "critically" examines: (1) the program's entry into Alum Rock School District; (2) parent and community participation; (3) voucher goals; (4) parent choices; (5) voucher requirements and expenditures; (6) parent information; and (7) evaluations of the program. The information given is based on documents and interviews conducted from December 1973 through March 1974. (NQ)
