Civic Capacity and Urban Education in Pittsburgh, Boston, and St. Louis.
Jones, Robin; And Others
This paper is part of a larger project comparing civic capacity and urban education in 11 American cities. The paper is divided into four sections. The first section attempts to explain why civic capacity and public education in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania), Boston (Massachusetts), and St. Louis (Missouri), evolved from different paths, although they share a number of other features. The second section provides a brief statistical introduction to each city and its school system. This is followed by case studies that highlight the development of civic capacity and its relationship to public education. In the final section the study considers common themes around the establishment of civic capacity and its activation on behalf of public education. (EH)
