Inner City Providence: Implications for Education. Attachment 2.
Blanchard, Walter J.
This is a collection of raw data and brief descriptions of the neighborhoods which compose the inner city of Providence. It was compiled so that staff, teachers, and the community leaders could think together about the implications of these data for the schools, education, and for the social studies project. Demographic data on the seven neighborhoods includes: 1) the adult, youth, non-white, and childless populations; 2) occupational distribution; 3) welfare statistics; 4) income statistics; 5) educational level of adults; and, 6) percent of housing deterioration. Descriptive information includes: 1) a history of each neighborhood; 2) the relationship among neighborhoods; 3) ethnic composition; 4) general economic problems; 5) community structure; 6) major youth concerns, and the drop-out rate; and, 7) the attitudes and values commonly held by disadvantaged communities. Tables and maps are also included. See SO 000 643, SO 000 694, and SO 000 695 for additional project information. (VLW)
