Urban Schools. [Urban School Improvement Paper 1].
Watson, Bernard C.
This paper examines strategies for urban school improvement within the realm of preschool, elementary, and secondary level programs, and systemwide programs. Examples of programs in each grade level area which are operating in different parts of the country are given. The following elements are identified as common to all successful programs: (1) well-organized and carefully executed plan; (2) dedicated staff; (3) diverse and interesting curriculum; (4) small size; and (5) clear and familiar goals. Parent, teacher, and student responsibilities are discussed, and the need to improve information utilization strategies within the school system is stressed. (JCD)
