The School as a Community; The School in the Community

Like many concepts in education, the term community school expresses diverse meanings and goals. One popular use of the term relates to schools where parents participate in planning social events, field trips, ceremonies, or a certain small portion of the curriculum. That kind of community school has its virtues, but it is not what is intended here. Our concern here is, first and foremost, with creating a sense of community within the school. In Part 2 of this chapter we will discuss the idea of the school in the community.
