Urban Education at Temple
There is a critical need for professionals with a keen understanding of the challenges faced by students and educators in urban schools. Urban students come from many cultures and economic levels, they arrive at school with differing levels of ability and preparation; resources at home and at school may be limited, and environmental conditions may challenge the time and attention they can devoted to learning. Interdisciplinary Urban Education strives to provide the comprehensive training necessary to discern, and then to address, these and other influences, which shape urban education.
