Urban Educational Challenges: Is Reform the Answer?
Perspectives on Urban Education, v1 n1 Spr 2002
Questions the excess of school reforms in urban school districts, asking why reform is so prevalent and so disappointing. Focuses on three possible sets of reasons (political factors overemphasis on structural solutions, and the research base underlying the reforms being adopted). Refers to efforts undertaken by the University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Education. Recommends moving from reform to improvement. (SM)
