Are rescue personnel prepared to respond to the next natural disaster? Can managed growth reduce urban sprawl? Does Head Start focus too much on health care and nutrition and not enough on building basic skills? These are just a sampling of the important, provocative questions in this popular reader, sure to lay needed groundwork and spark lively classroom discussion. For current coverage of controversial and important policy issues centering on urban politics, offer your students the balanced reporting and engaging writing that The CQ Researcher has consistently provided for over 80 years. This ideal supplement allows students to see an issue from all sides while giving them a window into how policy is actually made and implemented. In addition, useful pedagogical features-pro/con pieces, graphs, tables, maps, photos, suggested readings, and bibliographies-advance critical thinking and help in study and review.
