Urban Education--Today's Problem, Tomorrow's Hope.
Allen, James E., Jr.
This address outlined many of the problems confronting urban education. Listed as needs which are important prerequisites were such imperatives as adequate financing, changing attitudes, innovation, equalization of opportunities for the disadvantaged, and preparation and retraining of teachers. The author gave recognition to the attention in the areas of the structure and organization of the urban school system, the elimination of racially segregated schools, and to the creation of entry level jobs for youth. The apathy of the general public toward public education was noted, as well as the responsibility which the State must assume in the provisions for public education. (EB)
