Abstract/Notes: Recently, new comparative studies of the levels and causes of ethnic and socio-economic segregation across various European cities reveal that the physical separation of people belonging to different social groups is on the rise (Tammaru et al. , 2016) . While studies of the effect of the spatial environment, notably the neighbourhood, reveal that where one lives only modestly affects life chances such as work, income and health directly (Musterd et al. , 2003; Andersson et al. , 2007; Van Ham et al. , 2012) , other studies suggest that indirectly, via spatial sorting (Sampson, 2012) and access to specific amenities, the residential neighbourhood has effects (negative but also positive) on life chances. One of the key mechanisms through which place of residence may affect life chances is through schools. While the body of literature on school effects is vast and a plethora of effects have been...

America's Alternative Schools: Prototypes for New Public Schools

Available from: ERIC

Abstract/Notes: As prototypes for new forms of education, public and private alternative schools have much to offer regular schools in the way of new ideas. This paper provides an overview of alternative schools and the options available. Alternative schools are characterized by a more selected student body, a smaller and less bureaucratic structure, values derived from within the school community, holistic student work, and a recognition of the school-survival issue. The basic educational frameworks within the array of public alternative school options are identified: (1) the traditional approach; (2) the nontraditional and nongraded approach; (3) schools that focus on the development of student abilities; (4) schools that emphasize techniques for delivering education (rather than philosophy); (5) schools with community-based organizing principles; (6) the self-directed, Montessori-like environment; (7) schools that are intentionally structured for particular student groups; and (8) subcontracted arrangements. In conclusion, alternative schools are flexible and able to respond to students' various needs. (LMI)
