Southeast Alternatives; Final Report-1971-1976.
Morley, Anthony J.
The result of a five year project on alternative schools within the public school system of Minneapolis, Minnesota, this report provides a complete description of the project from the pre-planning and proposal stage through the final evaluation. The program was implemented in the Southeast area, a community consisting of several communities with different racial and socio-economic characteristics. It involved four K-6 alternative schools: a contemporary school, an open school, a continuous progress school and a free school. It also had one high school which offered options in school programs. All the schools emphasized cooperation between parents, administrators and teachers. Parent participation and community education were major components of the program. Since the five year federal project has ended, the local school board has voted to continue alternative education for all students in Minneapolis schools. (Author)
