This second volume of Compact Guides to Information on Urban and Minority Education includes three reports: a review of alternative schools, a report on teaching writing to dialectally different youths, and a bibliography on race and sex stereotyping in children's books. The first report discusses the characteristics, types and outcomes of alternative schools in a question and answer format. The nature of writing errors by nonstandard English speakers, problems of translation into standard English, and strategies for improvement of writing instruction are addressed in the second report. The bibliographic citations in the third report represent a wide range of topics on the problem of stereotyping as well as resources promoting balanced sex/race fairness in the treatment of images of minority groups and women.
