Palgrave Studies in Urban Education

Series Editors: Alan R. Sadovnik and Susan F. Semel

The purpose of the Palgrave Studies in Urban Education Series is to examine urban educational problems and policies from both disciplinary (sociology, history, politics, economics, and anthropology of education) and interdisciplinary perspectives.  Urban education has been the subject of ongoing discussions, with policies aimed at urban school improvement vigorously debated over the last 40 years.  As urban areas became increasingly poor and segregated, their school systems mirrored the problems of urban poverty, including low student achievement, high student mobility, high dropout rates and high levels of school failure.  Despite these problems, many educational reforms have the potential to improve urban schools: however, by themselves they are limited to reducing the achievement gaps unless they also address the factors outside of schools responsible for educational inequalities.

Alan R. Sadovnik is Professor of Education and Sociology and Chair of the Department of Education and Academic Foundations at Rutgers University-Newark. He is the editor (with Susan Semel) of “Schools of Tomorrow,” Schools of Today.

Susan F. Semel is Associate Professor in the School of Education at the City College of New York. She is the author of The Dalton School, one of the seminal histories of the progressive school movement in the United States.
