Urban Education in the 1970's: Reflections and a Look Ahead.
Passow, A. Harry, Ed.
A grant from The New World Foundation made possible a series of lectures during the academic year 1969-1970 on the theme "Urban Education in the 1970's." A number of the specialists who had participated in the first work conference were invited to deliver another lecture. Each was asked to take another look at urban education from the vantage of his particular discipline in the light of research and experience of the intervening years. The specialist was specifically asked not simply to update his earlier paper, but rather to attempt a reconceptualization of the field in the decade ahead. The nine papers included provide perspective on developments in urban education in the past eight years that can serve as a basis for projecting the direction in the 1970's. (Editor)
