The Prospects for Progress and Partnerships in Urban Education; A Report with Recommendations for Policy, Research and Knowledge Utilization.
This report analyzes the themes, issues, and concerns which were discussed at the Fourth Annual Conference on Urban Education, and provides an overview of issues associated with the development of a national urban policy. Discussion at the Conference focused on the context of progress in urban schools, the need to focus the relationship between the educational system and other societal institutions, and strategies for school management for urban school systems. Five general conclusions emerged: (1) the urban school and the urban district must be viewed as an integral part of other systems; (2) urban schools and educational policy and research have survived numerous traumas in the last decade; (3) the effective management of urban school systems in support of student learning and development should be a primary issues for the 1980s; (4) there has been little consensus about the development of priorities for the revitalization of urban education as a component of national urban policy; and (5) the prospects for a new wave of urban reform and revitalization have never been brighter. A framework for the identification of alternative and complementary issues in urban education is proposed. (Author/RLV)
