Urban Schooling.
Rudman, Herbert C., Ed.; Featherstone, Richard L., Ed.
This collection of articles about the contemporary urban school situation is designed primarily as a textbook for courses in educational administration, urban education, and urban sociology. The volume emphasizes the need for a close relationship between metropolitan school systems and the large city university. Included are chapters on the dimensions of urban school problems, the role of universities in relation to large school systems, the reorganization of school structure, the teacher's role in collective bargaining, and issues of school administration. Also discussed are Negro stereotypes and self image, socioeconomic status among whites and nonwhites, and intellectual development among disadvantaged youth. Other chapters deal with academic motivation and inner city schools, successful educational programs for disadvantaged youth, development of measurement and evaluation techniques, and guidelines for a relationship between urban school systems and the university.
