Evaluating Education Advocacy Work by the Urban Appalachian Council.
Maloney, Michael
Journal of Appalachian Studies, v5 n1 p129-32 Spr 1999
Describes Cincinnati's Urban Appalachian Council, which has worked since 1974 to create a less hostile school climate for Appalachian children, most of whom drop out of school before graduation. Discusses the social bias and student needs that the organization sought to address; assumptions about power, bureaucracy, and school reform; change strategies; and what has been gained. (SV)
