Metropolitan School Organization: Proposals for Reform. Volume 2.
McKelvey, Troy V., Ed.
Within the conceptual framewords that surround the development of new structures for the organization of education in metropolitan areas, contributors to this anthology focus on the purpose, conceptualizations, and proposed organizational structures of metropolitan educational reform activities. The book is primarily intended for scholars and practitioners engaged in the improvement of education. It emphasizes the progress of those communities that have adopted the metropolitan approach -- bringing education under the control of one system spanning the city and its suburbs -- and explores both the quantitative and humanistic aspects of such an approach. The various papers consider philosophical issues and the goals of education for metropolitan schools, conceptualizations for the development of metropolitan structures, development models for metropolitan school organization, and opportunities for shaping metropolitan futures. An extensive bibliography is included. (Author/DN)
