The 'At-Risk' Label and the Problem of Urban School Reform.
Cuban, Larry
Phi Delta Kappan, v70 n10 p780-84,799-801 Jun 1989
For almost two centuries, poor children have been seen as a threat to society because neither parents nor existing community institutions could control their unacceptable behavior. Compulsory education for so-called at-risk children has produced another problem: poor academic performance. This article argues for eliminating graded schools and redesigning school structure. Includes 23 references. (MLH)
