The Community School As a Contemporary Concept in Education and Its Evolution in the Czech Republic
Languages of publication
Abstract The article aims to introduce the community school as one of the possible models for the predicted development of schooling in today's knowledge society. Contrasting with its applications in the UK and US, the paper showcases current developments in the community school concept in the Czech Republic, reflecting on the position of the community school in contemporary specialist discourse. There is an overview of select research into community schools, the types of community schools in the UK, US and the Czech Republic (where the concept has only been applied since the 1990s in its present form), complemented by an analysis of the community school concept as a whole with particular attention paid to its internal coherence and diversity. Community school standards are outlined to provide additional background. The methodology of the article is grounded in the theoretical analysis of specialist literature, relevant projects, and other sources.
