Abstract: The organizational structure of one elementary school of the Camp Lejeune Dependents' Schools System was changed to provide opportunities for increased teacher participation in professional type decision-making in the areas of curriculum and instruction. This was done through the establishment of a Cooperative Experimental School Project initiated between the Camp Lejeune Dependents' Schools System, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, and the School of Education, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, in the spring of 1973. A basic premise of the project was concern for improving the education of children. It was felt those who interact most closely and most often with children should make most of the basic decisions about instructional programs for them.
