This second handbook offers all new content in which readers will find a thoughtful and measured interrogation of significant contemporary thinking and practice in urban education. Each chapter reflects contemporary cutting-edge issues in urban education as defined by their local context. One important theme that runs throughout this handbook is how urban is defined, and under what conditions the marginalized are served by the schools they attend. Schooling continues to hold a special place both as a means to achieve social mobility and as a mechanism for supporting the economy of nations. This second handbook focuses on factors such as social stratification, segmentation, segregation, racialization, urbanization, class formation and maintenance, and patriarchy. The central concern is to explore how equity plays out for those traditionally marginalized in urban schools in different locations around the globe. Researchers will find an analysis framework that will make the current practice and outcomes of urban education, and their alternatives, more transparent, and in turn this will lead to solutions that can help improve the life-options for students historically underserved by urban schools.

The purpose of this study was to investigate urban secondary school students' attitudes toward physical education. A secondary purpose of this study was to investigate urban secondary school students' attitudes toward physical education by gender and grade level. The instrument used to measure urban students' attitudes toward physical education was developed by Subramaniam and Silverman (2000). Psychometric evidence of validity and reliability for the instrument was provided in the pilot study. Participants in the pilot study were 502 urban secondary school students. The results from the pilot study indicated that the G-C alpha reliability coefficient for the factors to assess urban secondary school students' attitudes toward physical education ranged from .97 affect (enjoyment) to .96 cognition (usefulness). Fit statistics indicated that the scores from the instrument for attitudes toward physical education showed properties of construct validity for high school students. The study to investigate urban secondary school students' attitudes toward physical education consisted of 3656 students from 17 high schools in the New York City Department of Education. The results suggested that students in the 9th grade scored higher than students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades. Additionally, males scored higher than females for all sub-factors (enjoyment-teacher, enjoyment-curriculum, usefulness-teacher and usefulness-curriculum). Scores for males remained stable as they progressed through grades while scores for females decreased as grade level increased. Scores for students were moderate indicating that these students, may possess less than positive attitudes toward physical education.

Science educators have included the development of scientific attitude among the general aims of science education since the beginning of the present century. To many science educators, a man with scientific attitude looks for the natural causes of events, is open-minded towards the work and opinion of others and towards information related to his problem, forms opinion and conclusions on adequate evidence, evaluates techniques and procedures used and information obtained, and is curious concerning the things he observes. Contents: Introduction, Related Literature, Research Design, Data Analysis, Summary, Conclusions and Discussion.

Who holds ultimate authority for the education of America's children—teachers or parents? Although the relationship between home and school has changed dramatically over the decades, William Cutler's fascinating history argues that it has always been a political one, and his book uncovers for the first time how and why the balance of power has shifted over time. Starting with parental dominance in the mid-nineteenth century, Cutler chronicles how schools' growing bureaucratization and professionalization allowed educators to gain increasing control over the schooling and lives of the children they taught. Central to his story is the role of parent-teacher associations, which helped transform an adversarial relationship into a collaborative one. Yet parents have also been controlled by educators through PTAs, leading to the perception that they are "company unions." Cutler shows how in the 1920s and 1930s schools expanded their responsibility for children's well-being outside the classroom. These efforts sowed the seeds for later conflict as schools came to be held accountable for solving society's problems. Finally, he brings the reader into recent decades, in which a breakdown of trust, racial tension, and "parents' rights" have taken the story full circle, with parents and schools once again at odds. Cutler's book is an invaluable guide to understanding how parent-teacher cooperation, which is essential for our children's educational success, might be achieved.
