Walberg, Herbert J., Ed.; Lane, John J., Ed.
In this monograph, 13 authors offer their perspectives on the essential components of good schools. One interesting commonality is the tension expressed between institutional structure and personal values. Another issue that surfaces centers on the rising expectations of society for school achievement and the need for making learning more student specific. Titles and authors of the articles are as follows: (1) "Diverse Practice, Shared Ideas: The Essential School" (Theodore R. Sizer); (2) "James Madison High School" (William J. Bennett); (3) "Site-Managed Schools" (John J. Lane and Herbert J. Walberg); (4) "One Model for Effective Educational Reform" (Arthur Steller); (5) "Value-Driven Schools: The Amoeba Theory" (Thomas J. Sergiovanni); (6) "Organizational Arrangements at Effective Secondary Schools" (Daniel U. Levine and Eugene E. Eubanks); (7) "Paradigm High School" (Mary Anne Raywid); (8) "A Restructured School" (Joe Nathan); (9) "An Information Age School" (Robert St. Clair); (10) "Personalized Education" (James W. Keefe); (11) "The Computerization of Schools" (Dustin H. Heuston); (12) "A School for 2088" (Fenwick W. English); and (13) "Multiple Perspectives on Organizing for Learning" (John J.
