“From the 1950’s through the 1980’s, this case presents how a school has changed in reaction to societal and educational changes.” I. The World We Created at Hamilton High: A Schoolography - A book by Gerald Grant, published in 1988 - Documents the demand for educational reform II. A Super School (If you’re on the right side of the tracks) 1953-1965 - Hamilton High, New School in the suburbs - All white, middle class, driven by Greek Life - Purpose of the school was so it could be a college prep school. - School approved a desegregation plan III. Social Unrest Comes to School Comes to School 1966-1971 - Colored attendance grew (15% -> 33%) and so did racial confrontations - Bomb threats and impending violence grew, and the school had to close. - By 1971, more than 70% of teachers had left the school IV. The Students Turn 1972-1979 - Race riots and social structure split the faculty - A lack of trust developed - The lines of discipline became blurred - Student leaders emerged from chaos and began to reshape the school - The students were in control of the school, doing what and when they wanted - 1978 a new principal came and enforced discipline for all students - slowly adult authority was established V. New Students, Old School 1980-1985 - Special needs students started enrolling and sparked the second wave of change at the school - The law stated teachers needed to respond to the needs of disabled students, but the teachers didn’t know how. - Special Needs students were taunted endlessly - South East Asian immigrants also arrived and yet another hostile environment was created. Lots of fights occurred because of this. - By 1984, 1/3rd of students were using drugs - Finally, new adult authority increased academic demands. Fighting stopped, and the school finally settled back down.
