The major antipoverty strategies of the 1960's are analyzed--the conflict model of Alinsky, the welfare crisis approach of Cloward and Piven, and the new careers viewpoint of Riessman and Pearl. The latter strategy is said to have a greater "multiplier effect" on poverty than other approaches. Discussed are such specific strategies in the human services areas as mental health, education, and family planning. (Nh)

After deschooling, what? by Alan Gartner( Book )

10 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 598 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume includes ten articles. In the first, "After Deschooling, What?" Ivan Illich goes beyond his argument for deschooling, to the beginning of some thoughts about what society and education might look like following it. The remaining nine articles contain the reactions of a number of serious and active educators to the Illich article. They each found the concept of deschooling useful as a framework for summarizing the problems of traditional education. But they differed on the degree to which Illich was useful and/or sensible outside the context of his critique. These articles are: "Toward a Political Economy of Education: a Radical Critique of Ivan Illich's 'Deschooling Society,'" Herbert Gintis; "All Schooled Up," Colin Greer; "Taking Illich Seriously," Sumner M. Rosen;"After Illich, What?" Judson Jerome; "The Case for Schooling America," Arthur Pearl; "Need for a Risk Quotient," Roy P. Fairfield; "And It Still Is News," Maxine Green; "My Ivan Illich Problem" Neil Postman; and, "After Deschooling, Free Learning," Ronald Gross. (Author/JM)

The new assault on equality : IQ and social stratification by Alan Gartner( Book )

7 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book includes nine essays. In the Introduction: "The Lingering Infatuation with iq," the editors argue that since the iq test has again risen as an instrument of conservative policy, the test and the arguments built around it must be reexamined. Noam Chomsky criticizes the well-known "Atlantic" article, "iq" (September, 1971), in "The Fallacy of Richard Herrnstein's iq." In "Psychology's White Face," Ross A. Evans examines the major deficiencies in academic psychology as they relate to the black experience. Jerome Kagan examines the question of heritability in "What Is Intelligence?" In "Intro to Herrnstein 101" George Purvin combines his critique of Herrnstein's article with an account of his experiences in a class taught jointly by Herrnstein and Dr. Roger Brown at Harvard. David C. McClelland, in "Test for Competence Rather Than for 'Intelligence,'" reviews the criticisms that have been made of intelligence testing, focusing on the use of predictions of grades in school to validate intelligence tests, the role of abilities tapped by intelligence tests in determining job success, and the role of power in controlling life-outcome criteria; and suggests six alternatives. Stanley Aronowitz examines the role of social structure and dynamics in the perpetuation of intelligence testing in "The Trap of Environmentalism." Frank Riessman, in "The Hidden iq," discusses the influence of the testing situation on the determination of intelligence test scores. (Author/JM)

How to individualize learning by Alan Gartner( Book )

5 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article addresses the problem of achieving a successful program of individualized learning. Two major points are raised. First, the teacher should realize the importance of diagnosing and understanding the different learning style of each pupil. Some children learn more readily by reading, others by hearing. Some learn faster when they can be physically involved in the process. Some children like to work for long periods on one topic without a break; others shift back and forth from one subject to another. Study habits differ in children, and these, too, should be considered by the teacher. Second, the value of learning by teaching is emphasized as a tool that should be used more extensively. Cross age teaching reinforces what has been learned by the student who is helping a peer. The desirability of the teacher putting himself or herself into a co-learning position with pupils is also discussed. (Jd)
