Identity and inner-city youth : beyond ethnicity and gender by Shirley Brice Heath( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How ethnic identity and gender figure in building the embedded identities of youth in different contexts is examined, focusing on the self-concepts of inner-city youth. The voices of urban youth argue that their embedded identities, or multilayered self-conceptions, represent far more than simple labels of ethnic or racial membership. After an introduction "Identity and Inner-City Youth" by the editors, the following chapters are provided: (1) "Ethnicity and Gender in Theory and Practice: The Youth Perspective" (S. B. Heath and M. W. McLaughlin); (2) "Embedded Identities: Enabling Balance in Urban Contexts" (M. W. McLaughlin); (3) "Dances of Identity: Finding an Ethnic Self in the Arts" (A. Ball and S. B. Heath); (4) "Gangs, Social Control, and Ethnicity: Ways To Redirect" (J. D. Vigil); (5) "Child Saving and Children's Cultures at Century's End" (G. A. Fine and J. Mechling); (6) "Collaborate or Go It Alone? Tough Decisions for Youth Policy" (J. Langman and M. W. McLaughlin); (7) "The Winnowing of Organizations" (T. James); (8) "Misperceptions of Gender and Youth: Learning Together, Learning Apart" (E. Hansot); and (9) "Casting the Self: Frames for Identity and Dilemmas for Policy" (M. W. McLaughlin and S. B. Heath). (Sld)

Teaching for understanding : challenges for policy and practice by David K Cohen( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A lot of enthusiasm exists for the idea of teaching for understanding - a concept that portrays teachers as guides, coaches, and facilitators of student learning. But what does it really look like in a classroom? And how do we get there?" "In this book, leading experts on teaching and policy research provide concrete illustrations of what teaching for understanding entails. They show how, for example, to foster the knowledge, capabilities and professional beliefs essential for teachers moving beyond a "teach and test" approach to analytic reflection on classroom life and their relationship with students' learning. And they describe the collegial relations and institutional arrangements that support or inhibit the process of teachers and students working together in developing knowledge." "By highlighting the central issues for practice, policy, and research, the authors explain how diverse institutions - legislatures, state departments of education, schools of education, districts, teacher organizations - can work together to promote and support teaching for understanding."--Jacket
Professional communities and the work of high school teaching by Milbrey Wallin McLaughlin( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Urban sanctuaries : neighborhood organizations in the lives and futures of inner-city youth by Milbrey Wallin McLaughlin( Book )

10 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What makes some neighborhood organizations sanctuaries for inner-city youth is examined in this attempt to explain why some organizations are resources that enable youth to survive the harsh realities of everyday urban life in America. The first chapter contrasts the grim expectations for urban youth with the sense of the hopeful future expressed by some participants in effective neighborhood organizations. Chapter 2 introduces six young people and describes how their involvement in a neighborhood organization is a positive influence. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 introduce the adults who lead the organizations, described by the authors as wizards. In Chapters 6 and 7 those who help the wizards are described. Chapter 8 considers the funding of such organizations, and Chapters 9 and 10 review the obstacles youth organizations and their leaders face in the hypothetical cities described. Chapter 11 reviews some myths about inner-city youth and presents some realities about the hopeful role of neighborhood organizations. (Contains 164 references.) (Sld)

Evaluation and reform : the Elementary and secondary education act of 1965, title I by Milbrey Wallin McLaughlin( Book )

12 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is only in recent years that educational evaluation has become institutionalized. The present spate of reporting and the accepted belief in the necessity to evaluate can be traced to the 1965 passage of the massive Elementary and Secondary Education Act--the first major social legislation to mandate project reporting. This case study in policy research examines the congruence between the assumptions and expectations that generated these notions of evaluation and reform and the dominant constraints and incentives in the Title I policy system. The central question of this study concerns the degree to which the expectations of reformers about the conduct and use of evaluation squared with the behavior of individuals and bureaucracies, particularly in a federal system. Senator Robert Kennedy, the principal architect of the 1965 Title I evaluation requirement, viewed mandated evaluation as a means of political accountability. Reformers of a different stripe hoped that Title I evaluation could revitalize federal management of education programs. But state and local schoolmen argued that an evaluation requirement would presage federal control of local education. This tension between proponents and opponents of evaluation characterized Title I evaluation history. (Author/JM)

Reform and retrenchment : the politics of California school finance reform by Richard F Elmore( Book )

5 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Findings of a study that explored how California school reforms are initiated and revised and how differences between the judicial and legislative areas affect policymaking are presented in this document. Two themes--financial reform and retrenchment--are examined at two levels: as a case study about the politics of school finance reform and also as one episode in the complex history of equity as an objective of educational policy. The study began in 1978 as a political analysis of how Assembly Bill 65, a school finance initiative, evolved. AB 65 was invalidated by Proposition 13, a tax limitation measure. The study's focus then shifted to a comparison of the politics of reform and the politics of retrenchment. Methodology involved interviews conducted with key participants and document analysis. Chapters examine both the chronology and content of each major episode in California's school finance history. Chapter 1 provides an overview of the state's school finance system and context, focusing on three themes: (1) technical problems, political solutions; (2) judicial remedy, legislative response; and (3) political capacity and coalition building. Chapter 2 examines the issue of judicial intervention in policymaking in the context of the 1968 "Serrano v. Priest" decision. Chapter 3 examines the process involved in passing Senate Bill 90 and its effects on school finance reform. Chapter 4 examines events in the passage of AB 65 and shows how different perceptions of reform lawyers and legislative actors influence policymaking. Chapter 5 examines the effects of Proposition 13, a tax reform initiative, and AB 8, a retrenchment measure. The final chapter examines the relationships among the courts, legislatures, and reform. Four tables are included. (Contains 112 references.) (LMI)
Steady work : policy, practice, and the reform of American education by Richard F Elmore( Book )

6 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents an analysis of the relationship between educational policymaking and educational practice in schools and classrooms. It is designed to contribute to the debate on reform by drawing lessons from recent attempts to reform schools with policy. The authors' central message is that the connection between policymakers and practitioners should be strengthened. Changes in education are composites of practice, structure, and rules. Federal experience indicates that educational reform must be grounded in an understanding of how teachers learn to teach, how school organization affects practice, and how these factors affect children's performance. The authors suggest that, to be effective, current reforms must (1) close the gap between policy and practice, in part by charging practitioners with developing solutions; (2) accommodate variability, through policies that lead to better understanding of effective practice; (3) recognize that rules only set standards of fairness and don't prescribe solutions to practical problems; and (4) create organizations that foster reforms
Education policy and the role of the states by Lorraine McDonnell( Book )

7 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing specifically on the two largest federal education programs, Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (pl 94-142), this study analyzes how states implement federal and state education programs. The book is divided into six chapters. Chapter 1 offers background on federal-state relations and explains the research methods used, the grants-in-aid system, and the conceptual framework guiding the study. Chapter 2 describes the four states in the sample and identifies those political and organizational characteristics that shape policy implementation. Chapter 3 presents a comparative analysis of the data and discusses the conditions under which state political factors are most likely to enhance the state education agency's role and capacity. Chapters 4 and 5 examine Title I, pl 94-142, and state programs serving similar student groups. The final chapter addresses policy questions, especially those related to state capacity and its implications for changing federal and state roles in public education. (Author/WD)
Art history, art criticism, and art production : an examination of art education in selected school districts( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study attempts to discover (1) the factors that generate support for a strong, substantive art education program in a district's curriculum, and (2) what factors influence the willingness and ability of school districts and teachers to carry out and maintain a discipline-based art education that strives for balance among the historical, critical, and productive domains of the visual arts. It uses case studies of seven sites (Whitehall, Ohio; Hopkins, Minnesota; Palo Alto, California; Decatur and Champaign, Illinois; Brooklyn, New York; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Virginia Beach, Virginia). As a group, the case studies illustrate the importance of support from school board members, superintendents, and principals, of a written curriculum, and of in-service training. They provide examples of school-museum collaboration, and dispel the notion that systematic instruction compromises or constrains individual creativity
