A School for Everyone. Design for a Middle, Junior, or Senior High School that Combines the Old and the New.
Trump, J. Lloyd
The design described in this book incorporates experiences of the past eight years in a Model Schools Project that involved at various times 34 junior and senior high schools. It also translates many of the major statements issued by the NASSP as guidelines for improving schools into a workable model. The chapters show how the school develops the maximum potential of each student, teacher, and supervisory-management team member. Also indicated are unconventional methods for evaluating individual productivity and the quality of the school program. The first two chapters give the rationale; three, four, and five describe the people involved; six through fourteen show various program aspects; fifteen through nineteen indicate priorities and procedures for making the changes; and twenty presents the total plan for the school with some future agendas. The emphasis is on alternatives that creative persons can use to improve any school. At the end of each chapter there are suggestions on how to start. (Author/MLF)
