Urban Education and the Fiscal Conscience.
Weber, Robert E.
The author takes a critical look at inner city schools and sees their plight as the paramount problem currently facing the United States. He stresses the enormity of the problem by listing the primary ills which characterize inner city education: obsolete buildings, insufficient and inappropriate materials, inferior teachers, as well as multiple deleterious effects of ghetto life. The inadequate, sometimes destructive, system is seen as a result of a refusal to tax ourselves sufficiently to solve problems involving minority groups. Our education budget is but a small portion of the total United States budget, and smaller than the education budgets of far "less developed" countries. The author concludes that only when we put human growth and development priorities back into the realm of reason can we rectify this man-made "problem." (TL)
