Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


What are the best ways to set up and evaluate good alternative schools? It's a difficult question, especially in a day when there are as many alternative schools as there are communities to support them. This book addresses the question from several different angles. From emphasizing the importance of open channels of communication with parents to establishing dialogues with leaders from various relevant sectors, Mottaz outlines the start-up of a successful alternative school, showing how an alternative school can command not only legitimacy, but also respect, in any community.
