Access to Knowledge Removing School Barriers to Learning. Youth at Risk by Pamela Keating( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

School barriers to equal access need to be removed by fundamentally new policy initiatives at the state and district levels in order to assure educational opportunities for at-risk students. Gender, race, poverty and individual disabilities continue to generate barriers for at-risk students despite broad legal efforts at reform. The following school practices must still be addressed: (1) testing; (2) grouping and tracking; (3) curriculum and instruction; and (4) school organization and administration. The following policy approaches would overcome resistance to reform and permit educators and policymakers to work together: (1) place equal educational access high on the public policy agenda; (2) eliminate race and gender bias; (3) upgrade teaching and increase disadvantaged student access to highly qualified teachers; (4) alter formulas for compensatory education to account for the impact of poverty; (5) eliminate rewards for assessing and labeling students on the basis of social and/or personal predispositions; (6) develop model, integrated curricula and instructional strategies suitable for diverse students; (7) provide incentives for schools to forge non-traditional alliances among schools, families and communities; (8) join forces with all those who have a stake in schools, including universities, social service agencies, and the private sector; (9) deregulate schools and build capacity for improvement; (10) hold schools accountable for both equity and learning; and (11) marshal new resources and reconfigure existing ones. A 15-item bibliography is appended. (FMW)
