ABSTRACT
The article discusses the importance of human equation in public education. The people involved in public education are usually not put together in productive relationships. The article describes a public education model that stresses on the need for developing better and more productive human relationships, parent involvement, students' assumption of more responsibility for their own learning, and more autonomy for teachers. The model is actually in use in many classrooms and schools where individual teachers and principals build their own quite different relationships that make their efforts far more productive. It is time for other educators to the new approach now needed: principals who have caught on to partnership, volunteer coordinators who have seen the power of resources outside the schools, teachers who have tried cooperative learning, community educators who are skilled in reaching out to the community. Of two areas where the need for restructuring public education is becoming more self-evident, one involves the revolution in expectations for student learning.
