Witherspoon, Roger
Journal of Educational Thought, v21 n3 p155-61 Dec 1987
Argues that urban schools, as primary instruments of cultural assimilation and social equalization, have failed urban youth. Suggests the "committed school" model as a partial solution. Warns that strong white middle-class biases reflected in curricula and teacher attitudes must be eliminated before progress can be made. (DMM)
