If one in eight Ford Tauruses failed to operate, Taurus would quickly lose its reputation for quality and its popularity with the public. According to tenets of Total Quality Management, if Ford tried to focus blame on individual workers rather than improve systemwide quality, the problem would most likely persist, public and stockholder confidence would deteriorate, and the company might soon be bankrupt. One in eight students does not complete high school. Minorities, the poor, and the disabled often fare worse. Over 50 percent of students in a quarter of the nation's poor, urban high schools fail to graduate. Suspension, expulsion, retention, chronic failure, and alienation all contribute to unacceptable dropout and incompletion rates. Yet rather than take a systems approach to improvement, many states have created alternative schools for the "problem" individuals thought to degrade general education quality. Alternative schools evolved decades ago to provide an academic option for students not successful in regular education programs

Tuesday, October 3, 2000 What's up with the new design? Students thrive in alternative schools Jessica Thompson Staff Reporter Seeking a personalized education unavailable at larger public schools, many elementary and high school students are turning to local alternative schools for more options. Three schools in the Dinkytown area the Heart of the Earth Center for American Indian Education, PEASE Academy and Second Foundation provide specialized education programs based on student needs. The focus of the public K-12 Heart of the Earth Center is Native American history, heritage and culture, said Gordon Ferguson, an English teacher at the school. "Urban American Indians are pretty dispossessed," Ferguson said. "We focus on giving these kids a sense of who they are, and providing a supportive environment that many of them lack at home." Ferguson estimates 98 percent of the school's almost entirely Native American population of 250 live in extreme poverty. Last year, 25 percent of the elementary school students were homeless.

More local news Back to Home News Thursday, Apr 03, 2003 Local News Posted on Sun, Feb. 09, 2003 Youths adrift as alternative schools shut Mercury News More than 150 troubled kids slipped through the cracks last spring when the Santa Clara County Office of Education shut a handful of alternative schools serving students who don't fit in at traditional high schools. They were supposed to go to other alternative programs or back to regular schools, but as of last month, they were not in class anywhere. They were working, watching videos or wandering the streets. Erica Sanchez, 18, who quit school after Enterprise Academy was combined with another alternative school last spring, now has a job counting bridge tolls at $10 an hour. ``I know I won't have as many opportunities if I don't graduate,'' she said. ``It really bugged me when they closed it down. How can they take education away from kids who want to learn?''

Alternative Schools in Korea
As the concepts of alternative education vary according to various educational practitioners, so do alternative schools.

Cincinnati K-8s show improvement Data on attendance, suspensions and tests. Web extra: DeRolph Ruling As many as 14 percent of Cleveland’s 17,000 middle school students are likely to be at least two years older than their classmates. School officials say these 15- to 17-year-olds often crowd the schools and spell trouble for teachers and the 11- to 14-year-olds seated next to them. Cleveland Municipal Schools will address the issue of overage students this fall by opening two schools for 500 6th-graders who are 15 years old. At the schools, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Charles Orr, students can complete 6th, 7th and 8th grade in three years or less.

Back to On the Road with John Tarleton by John Tarleton
June 2002
Alternative Schools Give "F" to Regents Tests
Lai Ara Reagans is a sophomore at Vanguard High School who wants to go to college and become an early childhood teacher. She recently finished a report on the expectations that women and men have for themselves in The Iliad and The Odyssey. Now, she is grappling with Shakespeare's Macbeth. "Sometimes when I read it, it just feels like words," she says. "But, when we get into the classroom and analyze it, I can feel like I'm right in the story." Opportunities for students like Reagans to learn through inquiry may soon disappear as New York State continues to follow the national trend toward "high-stakes" standardized testing by implementing Regents exams at Vanguard and 27 other alternative public schools in New York City that previously had been exempted. Ninth grade students will be required to take a battery of tests from June 18-24. To graduate, they must eventually pass all five Regents exams. Standards-based testing has proliferated around the country in the past 10 years. Teachers and principals now commonly receive performance bonuses based on their students' test scores. In California, students as young as seven years old are taking 10 days straight of multiple-choice testing. American students now take as many as 600 million standardized tests per year, according to the New York-based Students Against Testing (SAT). That number will increase as the Bush Administration's "No Child Left Behind" initiative takes effect. By the 2005-2006 school year, public school children in grades three through eight will be tested annually in math and English. Critics of the tests worry that schools are spending more and more time and scarce resources on teaching kids how to pass tests.

78. Human Scale Education - Small Alternative Schools
Back to Main Menu, SMALL alternative schools, HSE PUBLICATIONS, There are currentlyfifteen small alternative schools associated with Human Scale Education.
Human Scale Education New Publication
Available from HSE Office Back to Main Menu SMALL ALTERNATIVE SCHOOLS
There are currently thirty three small alternative schools associated with Human Scale Education. These schools are all very different, reflecting the priorities of the people who have set them up. The common strands that they subscribe to are:
  • parental involvement in setting up/running the school democratic principles in the running of the school environmentally sustainable values and practices mixed age learning cooperation rather than competition links with the whole community
The key characteristic that links them all is that they are small varying from 6 to 60 pupils. All these schools emphasise the importance of the human scale. It makes possible the close relationships between teacher and learner that are fundamental to 'good learning'. By good learning the schools mean holistic learning encompassing the creative, emotional, moral, physical and intellectual potential of each child. Because these schools are all alternative schools they stand, reluctantly, outside the state sector. Their founders feel that the educational values which led to the setting up of the schools in the first place would be compromised by inclusion in the state system which demands strict adherence to the National Curriculum, SATS and League Tables. Such schools would like to join the state sector if they were able to retain their own educational values. At present they are compelled to charge fees in order to survive. Any fees charged are kept as low as possible and in some cases schools receive payment in kind rather than money. Much energy has to be spent on fund raising.
