Chapter Three narrates the survival schools’ first unstable years and their achievement of relative stability in 1975. Then it describes and analyzes the schools’ academic structure, governance, learning environment, and relationships among staff members, students, and their families from 1972-1982. The chapter compares these aspects of survival school education to other Indian and alternative schools in this period and examines the challenges survival school educators struggled with as they tried to create this alternative school system.
