The Development of Two Alternative Education Programs.
Ray, Rossi J.; And Others
Using Terrence Deal's four developmental stages of alternative schools, the authors analyze the development of two Lansing, Michigan, alternative schools (the Capitol Alternative Education Program and the Re-Entry Program). Deal's four stages are the euphoric stage, the psychic upheaval stage, the dissatisfaction stage, and resolution (either dissolution or a return to traditionalism). This case study found that the two Lansing programs developed generally according to Deal's outline, but over a longer period of time than the alternative programs Deal had studied. Both programs are still in operation and have utilized ongoing evaluation to ascertain whether or not they are achieving their educational objectives, which are listed in this paper. (DS)
