9781595582126: A Schoolmaster of the Great City: A Progressive Educator's Pioneering Vision for Urban Schools (Classics in Progressive Education)

The next in celebrated education reformer Herb Kohl’s series of classics in progressive education, Angelo Patri’s eloquent 1917 chronicle of multicultural education in the inner city remains as relevant today as it was ninety years ago. Long out of print, A Schoolmaster of the Great City illustrates Patri’s commitment as a longtime principal at a New York public school to integrating all backgrounds into the classroom and to nurturing a community that extends beyond the school yard. The New York Times Book Review called it “an inspiring and an aspiring vision, an ideal of a force that would be a greater power in molding and Americanizing and democratizing American life than it would be possible to find in all other agencies together.”
