This booklet contains selected papers from three conferences which had common objectives: to enable federal, state, and local officials to study the complexity of legal, social, economic, and psychological constraints on youth as well as the agencies created by these laws; to review the critical factors in urbanization, their relation to disadvantaged youth, and the impact on society of the urbanizing community; to examine the implication of changing patterns of work, living, and recreation for agencies and individuals responsible for youth, especially those who control the education of youth and the preparation of teachers; and to examine alternative strategies of action--legislative, educational, and social--which could serve as guides for responsible public officials. The papers, which focus on various topics within the objectives, are titled "Institutional Autonomy and Teacher Education,""Urban Schooling: A Case of Chronic Malpractice,""Preparing Teachers of the Disadvantaged: A Practitioner's Perspective,""A Look at Teacher Education Programs for the Disadvantaged,""Self-Fulfilling Prophecies in the Classroom: Teachers' Expectations as Unintended Determinants of Pupils' Intellectual Competence,""Work and Its Meaning in Contemporary Society,""An Educational Blackprint for the Schools."
