The Middle School. A Position Paper.
Egnatuck, Tony; And Others
A half-century or more of experience with the traditional junior high school has led many educators to conclude that it is failing to answer the needs of preadolescent and early adolescent children (transescents). The middle school approach can provide the best kind of educational program for children undergoing rapid physical, mental, emotional, and social growth, according to the authors. They outline the elements of an effective middle school program, including grade organization, school administration and staffing, curriculum, and team teaching. (Author/DS)
