Philosophy of Unified Education (1975). Unified Studies Report No. I:8.
There are at least five models for the way that learning environments are structured: (1) autocratic, (2) traditional liberal, (3) open classroom, (4) unified education, and (5) free school. The Unified Studies Program tries to blend the models in the middle. At the same time, unified education has some unique qualities that the program also tries to use: (1) a holistic perspective, (2) a unidisciplinary methodology, and (3) a quest for rigorous generalizations. Instead of learning fragmented bits of information, they begin to put things together. The aim is to produce breadth without superficiality, and to integrate life experiences with academic problem solving. (Author/KE)
