Schools Council and the Young School Leaver.
Schools Council, London (England).
This brief report describes formation of the Schools Council and the philosophical impetus for developing the "Young School Leaver Programme." Emphasis is placed on the council's work in helping the young leaver establish a relationship to the society into which he will emerge, and on more practical problems. The council's program attempts to provide not only teaching material but supporting evidence for what might otherwise remain hunches, information about methods and content of teaching for programs that work elsewhere, and new ideas tested in limited situations which may help teachers to think anew about the relationship in which the school stands to its local community. A selected Schools Council bibliography is also presented, as well as a list of council inquiries and projects relevant to raising the school-leaving age. (Author/PC)
