CEIC Review, v8 n1-2 Win-Fall 1999
Papers in this issue of the "CEIC Review" were commissioned for a national invitational conference on urban education.

The following papers are included: (1) "Education in Cities: What Works and What Doesn't. Recommendations from a National Invitational Conference" (Margaret C. Wang and Herbert J. Walberg); (2) "School Variation and Systemic Instructional Improvement in Community School District #2, New York City" (Richard F.
