Education and the Community (Hardcover)
About this item
First published in 1975, this book is the first to set out a blueprint for how schools can move from a ‘traditional’ to a ‘community’ base at local authority level. After presenting a historical analysis of the organisational development of the local education authority, it goes on to put forward a detailed proposal for an across-the-board, radically reformed education service at pre-school, school, post-school and college levels. Finally, it locates such a reformed ‘community education’ system in the context of community development at large.
