Creating a New Vision of the Urban High School

Creating a New Vision of the Urban High School

Download
Current structures of the traditional high school system come into question as our society has changed radically over the years, and especially in urban areas where the system has spawned large, impersonal schools. The design of high schools needs to be reexamined for the 21st century which has brought profound changes in our economy, demographics, family life and community. The paper reassesses how to best educate all students so that they can seek postsecondary education and participate in our knowledge-based economy.
