A Different View of Urban Schools: Civil Rights, Critical Race Theory, and Unexplored Realities. Revised Edition. Counterpoints: Studies in the Postmodern Theory of Education. Volume 291
Epstein, Kitty Kelly
Peter Lang New York
The revised edition of "A Different View of Urban Schools" updates a unique story about the realities of urban education in America and provides new insights on the origin of urban education issues; the route to a diverse and effective teaching force; and the impact of federal legislation and corporate involvement on urban schools. Dr. Epstein's analysis of problems is fascinating; her program for the creation of joyful engaging education is equally impressive. The result is a new perspective on what educational reform requires in American cities. This book will be useful to teachers, policy makers, school board members, and parents as well as in classes in multicultural education, ethnic studies, and the social foundations of education. [For the first edition, "A Different View of Urban Schools: Civil Rights, Critical Race Theory, and Unexplored Realities. Counterpoints: Studies in the Postmodern Theory of Education Volume 291," see ED496919.]
