Newkumet, Mary Beth; Casserly, Michael
This booklet contains descriptions of what America's schools are doing on their own and in collaboration with their communities to make things better and safer for urban communities. It does not contain statistics on the extent of urban problems; it simply focuses on what urban adults are trying to do for urban children. Program descriptions are given for 36 urban school districts. Each description includes: (1) background and description of the school district, (2) descriptions of preventive programs, and (3) descriptions of intervention programs. A contact number for more information is given for each district. (SLD)
