Big City Education: Its Challenge to Governance.
Haskew, Laurence D.
This chapter traces the migration from farms to cities and the later movement from cities to suburbs and discusses the impact of the resulting big city environment on the governance of big city education. The author (1) suggests how local, State, and Federal governments can improve big city education; (2) discusses ways of planning for the future under the pressures of current emergencies; (3) outlines the problems of making big city schools accountable to their communities; (4) describes the burgeoning needs of big city schools amid dwindling resources; and (5) discusses the difficulty of effective governance in obsolete structures.
