Education and Urban Renaissance.
Campbell, Roald F., Ed.; And Others
This book is the report of a conference at the University of Chicago to discuss the central question: "What are the characteristics of an ideal urban school?" The conference coincided with the passage of relevant "Model Cities" legislation, which was also discussed in the meetings. The first chapter describes educational problems in the urban setting. Chapters Two through Twelve contain papers by the conference participants. Chapter Thirteen summarizes the themes emerging from the sessions, and contains a concluding statement and recommendations for urban schools of the future. The themes in Chapter Thirteen center around race relations, prospects for the Model Cities Program, and school-university and school-community relationships. (Author/DM)
