The School Governs Itself

Record #:
South High School in Winston-Salem adopted an unorthodox policy of student lead self-government. The 936 students are divided into different departments which are self-sufficient. The objective was to impart a sense of 'right and wrong' and the ability to responsibly act on that judgment. The Personal Relations Committee oversaw the self-government system it consisted of twenty students with one guy and one girl elected to lead the committee.
