Education as a City's Basic Industry.
Kerchner, Charles Taylor
Education and Urban Society, v29 n4 p424-41 Aug 1997
Examines the function of public education in contemporary cities and argues that public education needs to be seen and function as a basic industry: an industry that creates forward and backward linkages, multiples investments, and attracts people and capital. It suggests urban schools should be seen as being builders of modern cities, not builders of expensive social programs. (GR)
