Parker, Benjamin D. – Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, 2016
Schools tell stories. The materials, designs, and aesthetic flourishes found in and on older schools built during the Progressive Era of American Education can be examined and unpacked for their purposes, subtle messages, and audiences. This type of analysis is of great importance, as many of these schools are still in use today and have served…

Furin, Terrance L. – Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, 2005

Strange, Alton C. – Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, 2005
Research on parent education has focused primarily on the dynamic between mother and child.

Darling-Hammond, Linda – Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, 2005

Socolar, Paul – Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, 2005
Schools with more targets to meet under NCLB were far more likely to be branded as in need of improvement. Some critics of the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) have argued that large schools and schools with a diverse student population are penalized by the law's provisions. School performance results from 2004 in Philadelphia appear to…

Blanc, Suzanne; Christman, Jolley Bruce – Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, 2005
There is great enthusiasm in Philadelphia and in districts across the country now for "data-driven decision-making" -- using the information from assessments of student learning to guide plans for what to teach and how to teach it.

Morrison, Malik – Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, 2004
Fifty years after "Brown v. Board of Education" (1954) (Brown I), American schools remain racially separate and radically unequal in both per pupil expenditures and student performance.

On Friday, June 20, 2003, the "New York Times" reported that, "This was the year that school reform began in Philadelphia.

Niesz, Tricia – Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, 2003
The classroom is at the heart of the often-mixed messages of school reform and school practice. Educators must make sense of these mixed messages in order to engage in the work of teaching. Viewing educators as social agents amid the complexity of educational discourse and practice provides a distinctly different lens on reform than those…

Cucchiara, Maia – Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, 2003
The author uses the "lifecourse" of one model--the community partnership plan--as a lens into school reform in Philadelphia, focusing particularly on the politics of school reform and Philadelphians' responses to privatization. The aim of the article is to show that education reform is not about the orderly implementation of a particular…
