The laboratory school : its rise and fall? by William Van Til( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inherent in the dream of the campus laboratory school were conflicting functions proposed for the school and conflicting perceptions on the part of the human beings involved. Students, supposedly representative, are more often more prosperous or bright or problem-prone than their age group in the general population. Parents, perceiving the school as another private school, often view with doubt or alarm its research and experimentation functions. The dream contemplated no conflict between the demonstration-observation-participation functions and the research-experimentation-inservice functions, but the conflict exists, centered in the differing views of education professors. Instead of combining the roles of master teacher, research partner with professors, and mentor to hordes of visitors, laboratory school teachers usually see themselves fundamentally as good teachers developing experimental innovating programs. Finally, instead of scarcely requiring justification, the laboratory school has had to fight for its life financially at the mercy of budget-cutters in legislatures or in university governance. Meanwhile the public schools have increasingly become the locale for student teaching or extensive research, and innovations in education come from massive projects financed by national government or by foundations. The friends of the laboratory school must build a better school on a reconstructed dream or it will continue to drift toward extinction through internal neglect and external assault. (Js)
