Some Alternatives for Alternative Curricula.
Willis, George; McKinney, W. Lynn
This paper examines current practices and recent literature in the area of educational alternatives and concludes that the alternative curricula movement has failed to provide a broad range of curricular alternatives that may be selected to fit the needs and interests of individual students and teachers. The authors argue that a theoretical and practical basis for differentiating curricular alternatives is needed, and they suggest that Grannis's model of "family,""factory," and "corporate" schools provides a useful theoretical basis. The second half of the paper explicates Grannis's model and discusses its implications for curricular alternatives in terms of such practical considerations as school operations, school organization, and educational evaluation.
