Student Structures: Moving Toward Student Government.
National Association of Secondary School Principals, Reston, VA.
This book is concerned with stimulating student government and developing student responsibility in the school. The author's basic premise is that there are ways to strengthen even the weakest student structure so that it serves students in a school and leads the way to a new spirit of student involvement. The booklet looks at various student structures with an emphasis on the strengths and weaknesses of each, and offers suggestions for constructive change, the maintenance of a student government once it has been established, and guidelines for working on issues such as student rights and responsibilities. The book also looks briefly beyond the school at public government and national student government associations. It concludes with an appendix divided into three sections: (1) a sample constitution: the traditional student council, (2) a sample constitution: the student-faculty senate, and (3) school government: shared responsibility. Throughout the report, a strong case is made for student involvement with the power structures in the schools and school systems. (Author/BW)
