Educational Reorganization and the Political Structure of a Suburban Community
MetadataShow full item record
Grosse Pointe, as a community, is threatened by external attempts to break down the sense of community which has traditionally bound it into a politically integrated unit. It must therefore negotiate with the larger community on the basis of its sense of community, even while that sense of community is changing rapidly. Any analysis of the community's reaction to the concrete issues of cross-district bussing or revised financial systems must consider the community both in terms of its internal struggles for unity and in terms of its attempts to deal as a unit with the larger community. In an attempt to formulate such a synthesis, I have organized what I learned about the structure of educational politics in Grosse Pointe under three general headings: a definition of the community, the actors, and political participation.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
