The Emerging State Role in Urban Education, or Cities Are No Longer "Pie for the Hayseeds".
Nyquist, Ewald B.
More than half of all public school pupils in New York State are enrolled in city systems. Noreover, if a child is educationally, physically, mentally, or emotionally handicapped, the odds are three out of five that he is in one of the five largest city school systems. If a child's family is on welfare, or black, or Spanish speaking, the odds rise to four or five. The author traces the historical development of the State's role in urban education and makes suggestions for its future role. He urges increased State support for urban schools, outlines the manner in which that support should be given, and suggests a metropolitan organizational structure to handle urban educational needs.
