EDUCATING THE URBAN STUDENT FOR THE URBAN WAY OF LIFE.
WILLIE, CHARLES V.
THE AUTHOR DEALS WITH THE ROLE OF THE UNIVERSITY IN EDUCATING STUDENTS TO BE CITIZENS AND LEADERS IN OUR URBANIZED SOCIETY. HE SEES URBANIZATION AS BEING DIFFERENT FROM, THOUGH RELATED TO, INDUSTRIALIZATION, AND HE SEES DISTINCT DIFFERENCES IN THE SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL RESPONSES NEEDED TO DEAL WITH THEM. WHILE INDUSTRIALIZATION, THE MAIN FOCUS OF OUR SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS, REQUIRES TECHNOLOGICAL SKILLS FOR WORK, URBANIZATION REQUIRES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SENSE OF COMMUNITY. THE AUTHOR BELIEVES THAT THE UNIVERSITY MUST SEEK TO EDUCATE LEADERS FROM AND FOR ALL LEVELS OF COMMUNITY, PARTLY BECAUSE ALL LEVELS OF COMMUNITY NEED LEADERS AND PARTLY BECAUSE TRUTH COMES ONLY FROM THE FUSION OF A NUMBER OF VIEWPOINTS, AND THAT UNIVERSITY EDUCATION MUST BECOME INVOLVED WITH CURRENT CONTROVERSIAL COMMUNITY ISSUES. THE AUTHOR STATES THAT THE UNIVERSITY MUST TEACH ACTIVISTS THE BENEFITS OF REASONED THOUGHT, AND THINKERS THE METHODS AND TECHNIQUES OF EFFECTIVE ACTION. THE AUTHOR ILLUSTRATES HIS DISCUSSION WITH A CASE STUDY OF SCHOOL INTEGRATION IN SYRACUSE, NEW YORK, AND TWO PROGRAMS PERTAINING TO COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT (THE THURSDAY BREAKFAST ROUND TABLE AND THE COMMUNITY ACTION TRAINING CENTER) SPONSORED BY UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY. THE COMPLETE DOCUMENT, "POLITICAL BACKGROUND OF ADULT EDUCATION, THE UNIVERSITY IN URBAN SOCIETY," IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF LIBERAL EDUCATION OF ADULTS AT BOSTON UNIVERSITY, 138 MOUNTFORT ST., BROOKLINE, MASSACHUSETTS 02146, $1.25.
