Three Perspectives on Schools, Communities and Citizenship. Thinking about Full Service Schools No. 1.
Kirner, Joan; Mukherjee, Dev; Semmens, Robert; Stokes, Helen
This collection includes three perspectives on "full service schools" and "school linked services." The first paper, "Schools and Social Change" by (Joan Kirner), highlights the role of Full Service Schools in Australia in recreating a sense of community in the face of global change and global decisions. This paper outlines the prerequisites for educational change. The second paper, "Linking Services, School Reform, and Community Development" by (Dev Mukerjee), suggests that a full service school approach should join school reform, interagency collaboration, and community development to reduce educational disadvantage. The third perspective, "Full Service Schooling for Full Citizenship from Theory to Practice" by (Robert Semmens and Helen Stokes), explains how Full Service Schools can be introduced in ways that enable students to become active and independent citizens. Each paper contains references. (SLD)
