Children At Risk.
Hunter, Richard C.
The at-risk status of so many American children is not an accident, but rather a direct result of our social and economic history. This document briefly recounts the history of blacks in the United States and draws on the experiences of the author in his capacity as superintendent of an urban school district to substantiate this position. Reverse migration to the South has exacerbated the problems. Today the home, the court systems, and the schools are seeking means of rescuing our youth from a bleak and even violent present. There is no one solution, and educators must avoid the trap of semantic labels. Flexibility is required to save the at-risk children, for their own sakes and for the sake of the country. A list of ten references is included. (Author/JS)
