Urban Education: A Board Member's Perspective.
Wilson, Jonathan C.
Phi Delta Kappan, v75 n5 p382-86 Jan 1994
Public education and the preservation of American civilization is keyed to the well-being of the nation's 50 largest school districts. Large urban districts are difficult to operate, serve largely nonwhite and needy populations, and are undergoing badly eroding property tax bases essential for their funding. We desperately need informed, representative school boards to keep local schools responsive. (MLH)
