Urban Education: The Relationship Between Schools and the Urban Milieu.
Snowden, Petra Elizabeth
Changes in the metropolitan environment and its population, and the inability of public school systems to respond to these changes, are discussed in this paper. The author states that public school systems are closed systems which are inflexible and resistant to change, and are therefore unable to meet the challenges posed by the massive changes that have taken place in urban areas. Recommendations are made for restructuring the city school system as part of a total urban planning strategy; for reconstructing educational bureaucracies into open systems responsive to metropolitan dynamics; and for the design of new curriculum models that meet the present needs of urban students.
