So much reform, so little change : the persistence of failure in urban schools by Charles M Payne( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This frank and courageous book explores the persistence of failure in today's urban schools. At its heart is the argument that most education policy discussions are disconnected from the daily realities of urban schools, especially those in poor and beleaguered neighborhoods. Charles M. Payne argues that we have failed to account fully for the weakness of the social infrastructure and the often dysfunctional organizational environments of urban schools and school systems. The result is that liberals and conservatives alike have spent a great deal of time pursuing questions of limited practical value in the effort to improve city schools. Payne carefully delineates these stubborn and intertwined sources of failure in urban school reform efforts of the past two decades. Yet while his book is unsparing in its exploration of the troubled recent history of urban school reform, Payne also describes himself as "guardedly optimistic." He describes how, in the last decade, we have developed real insights into the roots of school failure, and into how some individual schools manage to improve. He also examines recent progress in understanding how particular urban districts have established successful reforms on a larger scale. Drawing on a striking array of sources--from the recent history of various urban school systems, to the growing sophistication of education research, to his own experience as a teacher, scholar, and participant in reform efforts--Payne paints a vivid and unmistakably realistic portrait of urban schools and reforms of the past few decades. "So Much Reform, So Little Change" will be required reading for everyone interested in the plight--and the future--of urban schools
Teach freedom : education for liberation in the African-American tradition( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This anthology is about those forms of education intended to help people think more critically about the social forces shaping their lives and think more confidently about their ability to react against those forces. Featuring articles by educator-activists, this collection explores the largely forgotten history of attempts by African Americans to use education as a tool of collective liberation. Together these contributions explore the variety of forms those attempts have taken, from the shadow of slavery to the contradictions of hip-hop."--Jacket

"I don't want your nasty pot of gold" : urban school climate and public policy by Charles M Payne( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few of the current major efforts to improve urban schools adequately appreciate the extent to which the problematic social climate of urban schools can undermine the implementation of even very good ideas. As a result, programs often come and go with little lasting impact. This paper uses ethnographic fieldwork to illustrate the ways dysfunctional relationships among teachers, parents, and administrators interfere with the actual implementation of reform programs even when all parties are substantially in agreement about goals and means. Data are from 16 elementary schools in Chicago (Illinois) that are trying to implement the Comer process of school reform (J. Comer, 1980 and later). The operating assumptions underlying several current reform efforts are contrasted with the day-to-day realities of schools. (Contains 54 references.) (Author/SLD)

Getting What We Ask for: The Ambiguity of Success and Failure in UrbanEducation. Contributions to the Study of Education, Number 12 by Charles M Payne( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The problems of education in an inner city environment seem intractable, but this book offers a hopeful prescription. It argues that the problems have appeared insoluble in part because observers have been more committed to certain ideological, methodological, and theoretical fashions than to understanding what might work. On the basis of fieldwork at a Chicago high school with one of the city's worst records, the case is presented that a careful view of the school's disorders shows not unrelieved failure but an institution that has achieved some specific successes. For example, some teachers consistently elicit school-appropriate behavior from the very students who terrorize other teachers. The case is made that teachers, administrators, and students alike maintain a vested interest in patterns that continue to fail instead of learning from their successes. A parallel case is made for academic failure, on the grounds that here, too, entrenched patterns that sustain failure affect all parties. Administrative leadership, it is maintained, is the key to change. As an intellectual issue the problem of inner-city education is virtually solved: enough is known about how to teach these children effectively. However, the problem remains of how to mobilize the resources to do so. (Rdn)
Doing race better : race and the reform of urban schools by Charles M Payne( Recording )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"A series of meaningful talks that expose and explain transgressions and struggles -- both systematic and personal -- experienced by too many in our communities today, featuring thought leaders from our campus and around the world who are working to open our eyes to the consequences of prejudice, and seeking solutions for change. While race is not often discussed in the dominant discourses about how to improve urban schools, Professor Payne will argue that racial dynamics shape urban schools and school systems in multiple ways. He will also explain why race should not always be defined as a problem. Taking race more fully into account may allow us to shape more powerful educational practice."--Lecture series website

Education for Activism: Mississippi's Freedom Schools in the 1960 S by Charles M Payne( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Self-consciously activist education has a long history among African-Americans; however, it is one of the least well-understood aspects of African American struggle. This paper addresses one chapter in that history, the Freedom Schools that operated in Mississippi during the summer of 1964 and for a while thereafter. The schools were the creation of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (sncc) and the Council of Federated Organizations (cofo), a coalition of the civil-rights organizations working in Mississippi. From 1961-64, the sncc and cofo waged a campaign for African-Americans' right to vote. The idea for the schools came from Charlie Cobb, a Howard University student. The schools marked a turning point in the radicalization of the sncc in that they became part of a larger discussion of parallel institutions. If American institutions would not work for black people, African-Americans would create institutions that would. The Freedom Schools offered traditional subjects that were often unavailable in black schools, such as citizenship and cultural-awareness education. It would be interesting to have some discussion about how one would adapt the Freedom School model to the current time. The need remains for lessons about language and power, black history, the causes and costs of mindless materialism, gender-based oppression, and the linkages between racism and sexism.

I've got the light of freedom : the organizing tradition and the Mississippi Freedom struggle by Charles M Payne( Recording )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This book is an examination of the [Mississippi Freedom struggle starting in Greenwood]. [The author] reminds us that social history has tended to ignore or forget the ordinary people ... The more closely one looks at the history, the less comfortable one becomes with reducing the tens of thousands of people across the South who participated in local movements to faceless masses, singing, praying, and marching in the background ... Many of the young leaders who spread across Mississippi in 1962 were carriers of a particular tradition of social struggle, and this book is also an examination of that tradition.-Introd

Groundwork : local black freedom movements in America by Jeanne Theoharis( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the last several years, the traditional narrative of the civil rights movement as largely a southern phenomenon, organized primarily by male leaders, that roughly began with the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and ended with the Voting Rights Act of 1965, has been complicated by studies that root the movement in smaller communities across the country. These local movements had varying agendas and organizational development, geared to the particular circumstances, resources, and regions in which they operated. Local civil rights activists frequently worked in tandem with the national civil rig
