Description


Over a decade ago, the first edition of City Schools and the American Dream debuted just as reformers were gearing up to make sweeping changes in urban education. Despite the rhetoric and many reform initiatives, urban schools continue to struggle under the weight of serious challenges. What went wrong and is there hope for future change? More than a new edition, this sequel to the original bestseller has been substantially revised to include insights from new research, recent demographic trends, and emerging political realities. In addition to surveying the various limitations that urban schools face, the book also highlights programs, communities, and schools that are making good on public education's promise of equity. With renewed commitment and sense of urgency, this new edition provides a clear-eyed vision of what it will take to ensure the success of city schools and their students.

Book Features:

  • Surveys persistent and emerging challenges in urban education.
  • Synthesizes the latest education research in a way that is accessible to a wide audience, including teachers, students, administrators, parents, and community partners.
  • Focuses on solutions, highlighting new developments and opportunities for achieving educational equity despite ongoing political challenges.
