Crisis in the classroom : the remaking of American education by Charles E Silberman( Book )

31 editions published between 1970 and 1973 in English and held by 2,491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this bold new book, the result of a three-and-a-half-year study commissioned by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, Charles E. Silberman examines the problems that beset American education with the same intelligence, compassion, and uncompromising honesty that marked his award-winning best seller Crisis in Black and White." "Anyone who is concerned with the nation's public schools and with its colleges and universities will be disturbed by the picture of current practice which Mr. Silberman paints in vivid and painful detail. Many will agree with his insistence that it is not enough merely to ask, "How can we bring the worst institutions up to the level of the best?"--For all too often, the best is simply not good enough."--Jacket

The city and the Negro by Charles E Silberman( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A solution to the negro problem demands difficult and heroic decisions on the part of civic and political leaders and changes in the behavior of americans from every walk of life--teachers and students, trade-union leaders and members, and employers and employees. Current action being taken and future actions which need to be taken are discussed. The shame of slavery, the visual differences in race, and the lack of education and training in new technologically demanding times have made the problems of the negro difficult and self-perpetuating. Too many negroes are unable or unwilling to compete in an integrated society. Charitable and social-welfare programs organized, staffed, and supported by negroes are likely to have a much greater impact on negro behavior than programs administered by government or by private white agencies, both of which tend to be viewed with suspicion and hostility. To penetrate the environmental and cultural curtain that keeps the negro child from learning, the school should take on a comprehensive set of functions that lie outside its normal sphere. The negro child needs the same kind of education the white child needs--an education that gives him the intellectual discipline and depth of understanding that will enable him to meet new conditions as they arise. A new pride is self should be developed to help raise negro aspirations and achievements. This article is a reprint from "fortune magazine," march 1962
