Consulting: Facilitating School Change

pp. 20—25

The role of the consultant is to help the school become open, flexible, and humane - a hygienic place for total human development through learning. The consultant is there to make it possible for all children to develop the spirit along with the brain (Mc-Nassor, 1967). This is not a novel concept to begin to consider and deal with the sociological or ecological sources of student problems. All too frequently, however, the schools are prone to see an individual problem as something arising from the pupil rather than the societal context of the school. We need to become involved with the organization of the school and the methods used to relate with children. The consultant then works directly with administrators, teachers, parents, children, and the learning system or classroom.
