Problems and Prospects of Education in the Big Cities as Exemplified by Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Marland, Sidney P.
Racial integration and compensatory education must be used to solve the problems in the big cities. A little boy or a little girl who grows up feeling different from other people and is unable to have access to solutions that would lift him out of his excluded and isolated way of life has every reason to be sick, to be desperate, to be incomplete as a human being. Compensatory programs such as team teaching, transition rooms, preprimary education (including parental preprimary counseling), and expectant unwed mothers' programs can give aid to the members of society who need the extra help. Furthermore, it will take one generation before rehabilitative results can be seen. (JS)
