Understanding and Improving Urban Secondary Schools: New Perspectives
The papers included in this special issue grew out of a small invitational conference on urban secondary schools, held in May 2017 at the University of Minnesota which broadly addressed perspectives on a single question: What are the social contexts within and out of schools that affect achievement and humanization of urban secondary students? The authors’ contributions reflect a common conviction that it is time to move schools (and school leadership) away from a singular focus on improving instruction in order to increase tested student achievement.
