Planning Urban Education: New Ideas and Techniques to Transform Learning in the City.
Roberts, Dennis L., II, Ed.
This volume contains a number of articles which examine the crisis in urban education from a scientific, technological, and "total systems" frame of reference, and propose new strategies for making schools more effective and cities more livable. Urban education is viewed within the context of a total urban community system. Management, planning, and communications approaches to urban school reform are discussed. Newer concepts introduced include ekistics, city of man, systems approach, forecasting, cost-effectiveness analysis, sense of community, urban simulation, urban service, information system design, cybernetic-ontogenic approach, urban metapolicy, service delivery system, urban education marketplace, and the turnkey approach.
