City Schools: How Districts and Communities Can Create Smart Education Systems
In City Schools, Robert Rothman and his colleagues at the Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University put forward a vision of “smart education systems” that link a highly functioning and effective school district with a comprehensive and accessible web of supports for children, youth, and families. The book describes ways that urban districts around the country are becoming “smarter” and outlines the components of a smart education system. Drawing from dozens of examples, the authors show how districts can build relationships with cultural institutions, businesses, government agencies, and nonprofits to support student achievement and offer multiple pathways to education for urban youth.
