Creating Effective Alternatives for Disruptive Students.
Gregg, Soleil
Clearing House, v73 n2 p107-13 Nov-Dec 1999
Shows how a focus on fixing "problem" students may obscure or ignore school-based problems. Defines school characteristics associated with three types of alternative schools, with competing purposes: to educate, discipline, or heal. Notes ill effects of punitive approaches, and discusses three interrelated factors shown by research to distinguish successful alternative schools. (SR)
