The PTA in the Urban Context: A Final Report on the Urban Education Project Phase I.
The Urban Education Project was implemented to help the National PTA realize its historical commitment to reversing the deterioration of human life in urban centers, especially in schools, and to emphasizing the actual and potential strengths of diverse publics collaborating in dealing with urban problems. Six hearings were held to identify and select crucial concerns of urban areas, to examine effective solutions, and to develop new problem-solving strategies. Results of these hearings are described in this report, as are criteria for site and testifier selection and methodology and procedures used to collect and interpret data. The hearing cases are presented with information about problems, solutions and resources. A cross-site analysis of problems, solutions, and resources is presented and future actions are discussed. Tables of data are included. (Author/MK)
