Why are there “alternative” schools? Our system of public schooling was first organized in the 1830′s to provide a common, culturally unifying educational experience for all children, yet from the very beginning, certain groups of educators, parents, and students themselves have declined to participate in this system.
The period between 1967 and 1972, especially, was a time of crisis for public education, when student demonstrations, teacher strikes, and a deep questioning of traditional assumptions shook the system to its core. In these few years alone, over 500 “free schools”–nonpublic schools based on countercultural if not revolutionary ideas–were founded. Open classrooms and magnet schools (public schools of choice) were introduced. And the spirit of Rousseau, Pestalozzi and Froebel began to seep into academic and professional circles, leading, by the end of the 1970′s, to approaches that came to be called “humanistic” and “holistic” education. -------------------------------------------------------
