Planning for Schools of Choice: Achieving Equity and Excellence. Book III--Model Choice Schools: Traditional Organization and Curriculum.
Clinchy, Evans; Kolb, Frances Arick, Ed.
This document is the third in a series of handbooks designed to help educators who are considering controlled choice as a possible desegregation method. The document describes the educational philosophy, curriculum, teaching methods, school organization, and grading methods of traditionally organized schools. Four schools in the northeastern United States are presented as examples of this type of education. Three schools stress academic and traditional learning, and one school curriculum specializes in math and science. The schools include the Nathan Hale Magnet School (Boston, Massachusetts, Public Schools); Burncoat Preparatory Magnet School (Worcester, Massachusetts, Public Schools); Bridge Alternative Concept School (New York City Public Schools); and Isaac Newton School for Science and Mathematics (New York City Public Schools). The document also contains a checklist to determine whether schools use a traditional approach. The final chapter discusses some options for high schools of choice and describes a K-12 choice system.
