Urban Schools: Day Camps or Custodial Centers?
Haberman, Martin
Phi Delta Kappan, v82 n3 p203-08 Nov 2000
Many urban schools should be called cafeterias, recreation centers, or community centers, because more time is spent eating, playing, and socializing than on teaching and learning. "Schools" are day camps with compliant attendees or custodial centers with involuntarily managed inmates. Teacher effectiveness turns solely on classroom-management ability. (MLH)
