Social Deprivation and Change in Education: American Action and Reaction.
Passow, A. Harry
It is not easy to describe American efforts during the past dozen or so years aimed at improving the quality of education for all, with particular attention to those termed "the disadvantaged." The difficulties stem from the diversity of activities and programs, the ebb and flow of various efforts, the responses and resistances to legislative and judicial actions, the thrust of research and development programs, and the intricate interrelationships of political and societal forces affecting education. Several approaches might be taken in describing and analyzing the American experience. One might focus on the major pieces of legislation enacted since the Kennedy era. Another focus might be on a number of reports and studies produced in recent years which studied conditions and recommended policies affecting educational programs and school organization. A third focus might be on the hypotheses or theoretical bases or explanations--implicit or explicit--which have been advanced to account for the problems of the disadvantaged and which underlie various strategies for intervention in the home, school, and community. Yet another focus might be on the patterns of programs and projects aimed at improving educational opportunities and performance of the disadvantaged. (Author/JM)
