Ghetto School: Class Warfare in an Elementary School.
Levy, Gerald E.
This is a participant-observer's description and analysis of an American ghetto school, Midway School. The viewpoint that distinguishes this study is the positioning of observations in the context of the political and social reality that creates ghetto schools. Relations between children, teachers, parents, and administrators have a much broader social implication than the immediacy of the educational situation that brings them together. Because of the amount of time a child is involved in the education process, the ghetto school becomes the most significant platform of direct and personal communication between the middle class and the lower class. The book also includes discussions of the racial dimension of teaching, and the role of administrators and guidance personnel. (Author/JW)
