The Retransformation of the School: The Emergence of Contemporary Alternative Schools in the United States.
Duke, Daniel Linden
This book is a study of contemporary alternative schools and the complex of forces which led to their growth in the late sixties. Using current literature and a data base derived from a random sample of forty alternative schools, the goals, pedagogical methods, administrative organization, and composition of contemporary alternative schools are described. In addition, an attempt is made to formulate generalizations which characterize most of the schools in the sample. Also analyzed is the comparatively recent flowering of contemporary alternative schools despite a long history of popular discontent with education. Formative influences such as government agencies, universities, school administrators, parents, students, and individual teachers are dealt with in this analysis. (Author/EB)
