Partnerships in the Great City Schools: Improving Education and Services for Children and Families in Urban America.
City Policy Associates, Kansas City, MO.
Throughout the United States, public school systems have joined with local governments, agencies, institutions, and businesses to improve education and services to children and their families. This publication describes 34 examples of linkages that urban school systems have formed to help their students in the classroom, the home, and the community. The superintendents who described these programs believe that they are models of effectiveness that could be replicated in other cities, or that could stimulate thinking about new approaches to community and school problems. Each program description contains information about program operations and contact information. Leaders interested in system-wide reform or overall coordination of services will find models in this collection, as will those concerned with improved academic performance, career preparation, dropout prevention, student safety and health, after-school programs, summer programs, neighborhood services, and teacher training and support.
