Clasby, Miriam
This report is a series of interviews with fifteen citizens experienced in school community relations at five different sites across the nation. A background section presents the rationale for and the design of these interviews and introduces the participants. The greater portion of the report presents a summary of and commentary on the interviews which cover such topics as: (1) new sources of legitimacy for citizen action; (2) coalition building and its impact; (3) the isolation of schools from the community; (4) professional resistance to parent involvement; and (5) political resources in urban and rural settings. An appendix provides an abstract of each interview. (Author/APM)
