Enhancing Students' Feelings of School Membership: What Principals Can Do.
Arhar, Joanne M.
Schools in the Middle, v1 n3 p12-16 Spr 1992
Because families and communities often fail to meet adolescents' need to belong to a productive, functional organization, schools are increasingly fulfilling this role. Membership depends on social bonding, which has four elements: attachment, commitment, involvement, and belief. Principals can remove impediments to membership by fostering a sense of support for both students and teachers. (eight references) (MLH)
