Why Do Some Urban Schools Succeed? The Phi Delta Kappa Study of Exceptional Urban Elementary Schools.
Phi Delta Kappa, Bloomington, IN.
A study of successful urban schools was conducted using two research strategies. Part One of this report consists of eight case studies of elementary schools in midwestern cities. The case reports were based on self-studies, in many instances by school staff members. The studies were constructed to focus on the human factors that make the individual schools exceptional. The second section of the report is a comprehensive review of research literature. Hundreds of studies were reviewed and their findings synthesized to identify critical factors contributing to exceptionality. Data sources and search strategies are appended. (Author/MK)
