Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)
School district reorganization is an ongoing process intended to enable school districts to best satisfy educational needs. Urban, suburban and rural schools encounter certain similar problems while attaining a district's optimum organization; not all are educational in nature. Peshkin (1982) suggests the school is a highly important focal point of community and personal identity. Considering such potentially significant emotions, it is not difficult to visualize community resistance to a school closing.
