Fanon Center Restoration Model: An Emancipatory Strategy for Education of all Children. Final Report.
King, Lewis M.; And Others
This paper discusses the Fanon Center's Restoration Model, an "exemplary education" paradigm that seeks to institute a new educational ideology and alternative educational approach based on a "new humanism." The basis of this new humanism is the synthesis of analytic, affective, and sensate ways of discovery and knowing. The model places equal responsibility on the child, the family, the community, and the defined social educational institutions. Chapter 1 considers the objectives of the Fanon Center model. Chapter 2 presents the center's ideology and values on which the model is based. Chapter 3 defines principles leading to new educational realities. Chapter 4 presents an alternative sketch of what the educational community might become. Chapter 5 discusses the policy implications of the Fanon Center model. Chapter 6 examines suggested strategies for implementing the model. The appendix includes a glossary of relevant terms, a critical review of compensatory education, and a brief discussion of the Federation of Independent Schools. (Author/JG)
