Reforming metropolitan schools by Allan C Ornstein( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After presenting an overview of metropolitan schools, described as not successful in providing an adequate education for economically disadvantaged students, the authors examine four critical issues: compensatory education, educational accountability, decentralization and community control, and desegregation. While compensatory education has not been successful, movements toward accountability and community control offer promise for the future. However, the future of desegregation is uncertain. Long-range plans taking into account the difficulties of implementing desegregation may encourage careful and intelligent responses to the underlying issue; or the pretense that metropolitan segregation does not exist may continue. Interracial contact, it is contended, contributes to interracial understanding and cooperation; conversely, the absence of contact generates and/or perpetuates hatred and misunderstanding. It is understood that current conditions lead to low academic achievement caused, in part, by the sense of hopelessness and the feeling of illegitimacy inner-city students experience. Among potentially important school responses are a careful structuring of learning experiences leading to independence and self-control, parent involvement, minimization of failure, and positive self-definition.

Compensatory Practices in Colleges and Universities. Bulletin, 2(2),March 1966) by Doxey Alphonso Wilkerson( Book )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A number of compensatory efforts are being made to facilitate the college entry or further the academic success of socially disadvantaged students. For example, some programs are being conducted by colleges and universities and such foundations as the national scholarship service and fund for negro students to recruit disadvantaged students who would not apply to college unless encouraged, and special funds have been earmarked to aid both the talented student and the academic risk. In addition, a number of institutions have modified their admissions criteria to accept disadvantaged students with potential for college work. Another effort has been made through a variety of summer preparatory programs for high school students conducted at the colleges themselves. Some institutions have offered remedial curriculums, but they have found that there is limited evidence that these courses improve academic performance. Although the number of compensatory programs has increased, few colleges have instituted these practices, and those that have serve only small numbers of disadvantaged students. Because many institutions are trying to maintain high admissions standards, increasing precollege compensatory programs which upgrade these students' education is a particularly promising way to have them admitted. However, these and other compensatory programs must be systematically evaluated. Included is a bibliography of more than 75 references. This article was published in "ircd bulletin," volume 2, number 2, march 1966. (ef)
