Urban Education: Student Unrest, Teacher Behaviors, and Black Power.
Ornstein, Allan C.
The contents of this book are as follows. Chapter I, "The disadvantaged: overview and trends," provides a brief synopsis of some of the major factors related to educating the disadvantaged. Chapter II, "Emerging youth deprivation," examines two groups of students--middle- and upper-middle-class white students and black students of all classes--who seemed the most dissonant and active among all the student subgroups. Chapter III, "Why ghetto teachers fail," outlines the ways in which the teachers are victimized by their improper training, their students, their supervisors, the school system, and professors of education. Chapter IV, "Teacher training for ghetto schools," develops a modest plan for improving teacher training, specifically for teachers of the disadvantaged. Chapter V, "Myths of integration, 'Liberalism,' and research on blacks," is divided into four parts: (1) methods of organization reform for implementing school desegregation; (2) why school desegregation and integration have failed; (3) the "liberals'" reaction to black power and black violence; and, (4) false research on blacks. Chapter VI discusses "Decentralizing urban schools." (Author/JM)
