An Urban Education First Principle: Community Education Centers.
Blair, George E.
This proposal for urban community education centers defends the critical need for supplementary educational programs in academic, vocational, cultural, recreational, health, and other related services for urban ghetto residents beyond school age. The centers would be human resource programs, organized within a local area and using school facilities as a base. The centers would also provide counseling service and guidance in using available welfare agencies. Although not duplicating the narrower functions of the traditional school, the centers would offer preschool programs to help prevent learning disabilities, and provide programs in tutoring, recreation, and adult education. The centers would also draw on the resources of the non-ghetto community--business, labor, and other occupational organizations--for both counseling and volunteer personnel. (KG)
