A model is presented for the categorizing of alternative schools, then the nature of the free school, which represents the essence of the alternative school movement, is examined. Strengths and weaknesses of court, legislative, and administrative approaches to resolve governance issues are set forth. This is followed by an analysis of three possible futures for the role of the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) for dealing with alternative schools: discourage, ignore, or support. The paper concludes with a consideration of some steps that should be taken if the DPI assumes a supportive stance. (Author/MLF)
