Inner City Model Adolescent School. A Research Model.
McFadden, Ronald B.
This paper examines the problems and needs of inner-city youth and suggests a model educational institution for adolescents residing in urban centers during future decades. Specific problems and needs referred to include biological, psychological, environmental, and socioeconomic, particulary those problems faced by the black adolescent. It is proposed that a model school for inner-city youth should take these problems and needs into consideration. In addition, it is argued that the secondary school should be at the apex of the city community and that all of its industrial and commercial means of production should be directly responsible for the viability and economic survival of all secondary institutions. The model presented is based on the contention that there is a need to drastically alter the cultural, social and economic environmental framework in which city secondary schools currently operate. An enumeration and discussion of the model school's underlying philosophy is followed by a description of the proposed curriculum and administrative policy. (Author/EB)
