Educational Reform and the Plight of the Nation's Poor: A Political Approach for Educators.
Green, Robert L.
Educational problems can only be dealt with by overcoming social inequalities in urban areas. To solve the educational problems, teachers and administrators must work to solve such urban problems as unemployment, inadequate housing, hunger and malnutrition, urban mortality, and crime. Only if they understand these problems will educators have the necessary background for them to be in positions to act as advocates and spokesmen for the less fortunate. By making social change a high priority the problems plaguing urban schools can be redressed. (MC)
