Curriculum, Community, and Urban School Reform. Secondary Education in a Changing World
Franklin, Barry M.
Palgrave Macmillan
Barry M. Franklin's new work uses the concept of community as a lens for interpreting urban school reform since 1960. Focusing on the curriculum and employing case studies, he applies the concept to reform initiatives in a number of city school systems. Included are compensatory education, community control, mayoral takeovers, educational partnerships, and smaller learning communities. This comprehensive work concludes with a consideration of how we can employ the concept of cosmopolitanism to change the idea of community for a twenty-first century, globalized world and its schools.
