Organization of Schools: An Overview of Alternative Grade Level Arrangements.
Hess, Fritz; And Others
This document explores the grouping of grades in elementary and secondary schools, examining the historical reasons for the development of grade clusters, from the appearance of the Prussian system in the nineteenth century to the impact of declining enrollment today. The influence of changing attitudes toward child development on the restructuring of grade groupings is weighed. The incorporation of junior colleges into the public school system is touched on as a possible future development. (Author/PGD)
