Structuring Schools for Greater Effectiveness with Educationally Disadvantaged or At-Risk Students.
Levin, Henry M.
This paper discusses the effective restructuring of schools to accommodate at-risk children. Broadly, it addresses some issues of school structure and management for meeting the educational needs of this large and increasing group of students. Specifically, it defines and analyzes effectiveness within the accelerated schools model developed by Stanford University researchers to accelerate the academic progress of disadvantaged learners. It mentions the disadvantages that school districts face in the absence of such a model, suggests to administrators and policymakers how to shift district-based organizational decisions to school-based ones, and lists the advantages associated with this new arrangement.
