To Teach or Not to Teach in an Urban School?
Weiner, Lois
English Journal, v88 n5 p21-25 May 1999
Observes that kids and teachers are sabotaged by the way urban schools are funded, organized, and run. Advises city teachers to never assume students cannot learn something the teacher wants to teach, to teach literature that both teachers and students will love studying together, and to remember that students themselves are a valuable resource.
