Title:The Harlem Children's Zone, Promise Neighborhoods, and the Broader, Bolder Approach to Education
Organization:Brookings Institution
Short Description:With the Obama administration proposing hundreds of millions of dollars of new federal funding for Promise Neighborhoods, with the shape of the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act under influence from the Broader, Bolder philosophy, and with the academic future of a generation of poor children on the line, this report asks whether the Harlem Children's Zone (HCZ) works, and whether it works as advertised.
Annotation:The rationale and appeal of the Harlem Children's Zone (HCZ) is its holistic, neighborhood-based approach to the educational achievement of low-income students. With the Obama administration proposing hundreds of millions of dollars of new federal funding for Promise Neighborhoods, with the shape of the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act under influence from the Broader, Bolder philosophy, and with the academic future of a generation of poor children on the line, this report asks whether the HCZ works, and whether it works as advertised.
