Abstract

The history of a parent cooperative school was explored to help return the school to its democratic roots. Key influences included the past and present teachers and families at the school, The EdVisions Cooperative, and authors such as Enloe, Rogoff, Romanish, and Taylor. Analysis of the minutes and interviews of three former teachers were used to explore the history of the school's various democratic structures. The research was then applied to create a Teacher Collective to run the school while maintaining a parent/teacher cooperative to govern the school. The history and the new management structure provide several models for teacher-run schools.
