The Return of the Nongraded Classroom.
Anderson, Robert H.
Principal, v72 n3 p9-12 Jan 1993
Graded school concept, born of administrative practicality and puritanical traditions, has promulgated its lockstep curriculum, its simplistic child development assumptions, and its sexist, isolationist teaching methods since the mid-1800s. Most natural learning environment calls for heterogeneous multiage groupings, within which other groupings may be created as needed. Nongraded schools offer reasonable alternative that takes about five years to launch. (MLH)
