Making Co-Operative Ideas Work
Arnold, Phil
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v55 n2 p245-254 2013
Reddish Vale Technology College was the first co-operative trust in England. The democratic and co-operative nature of the experiment mean that students have gained a greater voice in the organisation of the school. As a result, new social enterprises, environmental interventions, connections with the community and with the wider co-operative movement have all thrived. The importance of taking action in partnership with learners, staff, parents, partners and community all contribute to the development of a more autonomous and democratic form of education. This example is understood within the context of the Schools Co-operative Society.
