Abstract/Description: "Meaning is given to a philosophy not through the mere acquisition of facts but in addition to facts, a certain spirit of open-mindedness of work and a search for causes. In the attempt of school personnel in Walton County to achieve democratic cooperation, attention has been focused on leaders in the educational field who, through experience, have learned that certain patterns are more conducive to use of initiative and cooperation than others. From them and through our own experiences we have learned that to achieve democratic cooperation the group must understand the nature of the process itself and be willing to take the necessary steps to achieve it. The group as a whole must realize that the well-being, happiness, and growth of each individual within the group are the basis of its strength and progress. The group members must be willing and ready to serve and to make necessary sacrifives in order that the welfare of the individual may be insured. Also, the group must be convinced that the conditions of human living can be bettered through intelligent cooperation supporting the efforts for improvement"--Introduction.
