Yearbook of the National Society for the Study of Education
The contributors to this yearbook attempt to explain the reasons for the poor fit between schools and poor, immigrant, linguistically different, and racial minority students. The problems that confront schools because of changing populations and increased diversity are discussed in the following chapters: (1) "The Old Problem of 'New Students': Purpose, Content, and Pedagogy" (W. Norton Grubb); (2) "Changing Students/Changing Needs" (Aaron M. Pallas, Gary Natriello, and Edward L. McDill); (3) "Nurturing Potential Talent in a Diverse Population" (A. Harry Passow); (4) "Normalizing Preschool Education: The Illusive Imperative" (Sharon L. Kagan); (5) "The Unfulfilled Mission of Federal Compensatory Education Programs" (Erwin Flaxman, Gary Burnett, and Carol Ascher); (6)"Second-Chance Programs for Youth" (Frederick Doolittle); (7) "Preparation for Work: The 'Forgotton' Student" (Erwin Flaxman and others); (8) "Curriculum Controversies in Multicultural Education" (Christine E. Sleeter); (9) "Creating Educational Opportunity for African Americans without Upsetting the Status Quo" (Robert Lowe and Harvey Kantor); (10) "Minority Schools on Purpose" (Charles L. Glenn); (11) "Families and Neighborhoods as Contexts for Education" (Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, Jill Denner, and Pam Klebanov); and (12) "The Effectiveness of Collaborative School-Linked Services" (Margaret C. Wang, Geneva D. Haertel, and Herbert J. Walberg). (SLD)
