PACER Model: Education for Democracy [and] Meetings and Student Control.
Wardle, Francis
This document presents a program description of Pacer School, a free school in its fifth year of operation in Kansas City, Missouri. The first part of the paper, entitled "Education for Democracy," describes how the school got started, staff background and role, finances, curriculum, activities, physical environment and playground design and equipment. The second part, entitled "Meetings and Student Control," focuses on educational philosophy and student-centered governance. Much of the discussion is anecdotal and conveys a sense of the qualities of the school's social and physical environments. (JMB)
