Carvan, Moreen Travis; Nolen, Amanda; Yinger, Robert
Teacher Education and Practice, v15 n1-2 p88-101 Spr-Sum 2002
The Urban Network for the Improvement of Teacher Education emphasizes that teachers must be specifically prepared for teaching in urban settings and must understand that urban education is very unique. It views urban education as a component of complex communities, highlighting four areas for reform: the culture of colleges, instructional quality, programs for preparing teachers for urban contexts, and working relationships with elementary and secondary schools.
