The Issue of Civic Capacity in Urban Educational Reform: The Case of New Jersey's Thirty Poorest Districts.
Walker, Elaine M.; Gutmore, Dan
Journal of Negro Education, v71 n1-2 p60-76 Win-Spr 2002
Investigated factors predicting districts' abilities to generate cross-sector support for reforms, using New Jersey's 1998 Supreme Court decision mandating the implementation of comprehensive reforms in its 30 poorest districts and exploring the extent to which community support impacted willingness to embrace reforms and perceptions of resource problems. Results suggest that reform and policy environments must be redefined to align with the realities of urban schools. (SM)
