Where Everybody Knows Your Name: The Beauty of Small Schools.
Capps, William R.; Maxwell, Mary Ellen
American School Board Journal, v186 n9 p35-36 Sep 1999
The trend toward bigness and consolidation continues unabated, driven by political, economic, social, and demographic considerations, rather than extensive research attesting to small schools' educational benefits. School size influences social interaction and degree of student alienation. We need to reclaim the small school's sense of community, caring, and meaning. (MLH)
