Educational Policy for the Inner City. Draft.
Thomas, Thomas C.
Most of the important educational issues for the country are represented in problems of urban education. This report concentrates on one of the practical issues for the urban education policy maker--education policy for the poor minority child who lives in the inner city. It concerns educational policy for the inner city over the next 10 years. The results of policy research on this issue should give policy makers a broad perspective on the issue and offer a wide variety of programs from which to select. Major findings are summarized under three main headings: (1) educational policy research, (2) urban education policy, and (3) urban education research. These headings are a first step toward effective dissemination. The body of the report contains detailed discussion of these points, organized in the framework developed for the internal task of policy research. (Author/DE)
