EDUCATION IN METROPOLITAN AREAS.
HAVIGHURST, ROBERT J.
THIS BOOK DISCUSSES THE EFFECT OF METROPOLITANISM ON EDUCATION. METROPOLITANISM IS VIEWED BOTH AS A SET OF "EVENTS" AND AS A SET OF "GOALS" OR "TASKS" WHICH CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY SHOULD ACHIEVE. ONE PART OF THE BOOK DISCUSSES THE SOCIAL STRUCTURE AND GROWTH OF METROPOLITAN AREAS AND THE OPERATION OF METROPOLITAN SCHOOL SYSTEMS. SUCH ISSUES AS SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS, RACIAL STRATIFICATION, MOBILITY, URBANIZATION, CHARACTERISTICS OF SUBURBS, SCHOOL SEGREGATION, AND VARIOUS KINDS OF SCHOOLS AND TYPES OF EDUCATION ARE DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION. ANOTHER SECTION IS DEVOTED TO CONTEMPORARY SOCIAL CHANGES IN WHICH URBAN RENEWAL AND THE NEGRO SOCIAL REVOLUTION ARE PARTICULARLY SIGNIFICANT. BECAUSE THESE SOCIAL CHANGES PRESENT A SPECIAL CHALLENGE TO TEACHERS, ONE CHAPTER IN THIS SECTION DEALS WITH THE SOCIAL ORIGINS, ATTITUDES, PREPARATION, AND MINORITY-GROUP STATUS OF TEACHERS IN BIG CITY SCHOOLS. THE FINAL CHAPTER OF THE BOOK DISCUSSES THE SCHOOL SYSTEM AS A FUNCTIONAL SOCIAL SYSTEM IN THE METROPOLITAN AREA. THE BOOK CONTAINS AN APPENDIX OF STATISTICAL DATA AND A FULL BIBLIOGRAPHY. AVAILABLE FROM ALLYN AND BACON, INC., 150 TREMONT STREET, BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS 02111. (NH)
