This volume brings together leading scholars in urban education to focus on inner city matters, specifically as they relate to educational research, theory, policy, and practice. Each chapter provides perspectives on the history and evolving nature of urban education, the current education landscape, and helps chart an all-important direction for future work and needs. The Handbook addresses seven areas that capture the breadth and depth of available knowledge in urban education: (1) Psychology, Health and Human Development, (2) Sociological Perspectives, (3) Families and Communities, (4) Teacher Education and Special Education, (5) Leadership, Administration and Leaders, (6) Curriculum a Instruction, and (7) Policy and Reform.Rather than a smooth transition from one grade to the next, or from one school to the next, a certain number ofstudents are lost at each stage. ... at Columbia University collaborated on a study of the educational pathways ofBlack males in public schools (Ka12) in New York City. ... in the educational trajectories of young Black males who were in 4th grade in 1998 and were expected to graduate in 2007.
