A Fresh Look at Urban Education.
Marland, S. P., Jr.
City schools must infuse strength into the young which is equal to the malignant forces which threaten their young lives and future happiness. Effective comprehensive planning must begin with an honest estimate of the desired output. Title I and Model Cities are two parallel programs sponsored by the Federal Government which seek to give help to the poor and the socially disadvantaged in the inner cities. Changes in the educational process are brought about by programs designed to engage community involvement, the introduction of early reading experience into kindergarten, compensatory education for all children in need of it, and programs to improve neighborhoods. While these two programs parallel each other, it is necessary that services are not duplicated or counter-productively competitive. State and Federal agencies must be ready to assist communities requesting aid or consultation, and the efforts of State and Federal offices should be fully coordinated. (Author/SB)
