For one thing: yes, schools should "belong to the community," precisely because such neighborhoods--or collectivities of neighborhoods--must be strengthened if democracy is to survive. Since I also believe that institutions are best governed by those with the closest "self-interest," schools need to be organized to privilege the staff, the families. and the students directly involved. Small, self-governing community-based schools, well and equally funded by the state and federal government seem wisest to me at this time in our history.
