Special Report on Urban Education.
National Advisory Council on the Education of Disadvantaged Children, Washington, DC.
Urban schools are not, in and of themselves, the source of all the problems with respect to urban education. But 4.6 percent of public school districts enroll 46.3 percent of all the students in this country, and urban schools have a significant role to play in determining how well or how poorly America's youth are prepared to function in society. Some problem areas that need to be addressed are: (1) the recruitment, selection, supervision, and evaluation of school personnel; (2) teacher education, both preservice and inservice; (3) school responsiveness and sensitivity; (4) the role of collective bargaining; (5) instructional time; (6) educational finances; (7) societal influence on students; (8) school accountability to the public; (9) parent involvement; (10) community environment; and (11) urban concentration and poverty.
