Expansion of an Alternative School Typology
Henrich, Randy S.
Journal of At-Risk Issues, v11 n1 p25-37 Win 2005
The alternative education program remains a viable response for engaging students who would otherwise be dropouts. Raywid (1994) synthesized and advanced an alternative school typology describing organizational characteristics with related effectiveness that appeared useful for considering and improving program practices. A Unique opportunity arose involving the chance to scrutinize the transformation of a school-within-a-school alternative program in consideration of Raywid's (1994) typology using a mixed-methods case study relying upon questionnaire, documentary, observational, interview data, and propositions. The findings yielded significant contributions through expansion of the typology. (Contains 4 figures and 11 tables.)
