The Praeger Handbook of Urban Education, Volume 2
Maintaining that urban teaching and learning is characterized by many contradictions, this work proposes that there is a wide range of social, cultural, psychological, and pedagogical knowledge urban educators must possess in order to engage in effective and transformative practice. It is necessary for those teaching in urban schools to be scholar-practitioners rather than bureaucrats who can only follow rather than analyze, understand, and create.
