Summary

The task force was concerned with urban youths' schools and social setting. In no other group of children are the factors of self-concept and self-esteem more crucial to their roles as learners and citizens. Many fall into reaction patterns of withdrawal and aggression. These are youngsters whose reaction to the outcast role has taken the form of savage aggression against their environment. At the colloquy, the task force undertook three responsibilities for the association for supervision and curriculum development. The first of these was to examine those urban conditions affecting the lives and education of disadvantaged secondary school youth. The second phase undertook to discuss priority needs for improving the needs for improving the secondary school curriculum of urban disadvantaged youth. The third phase explored the possibilities of curriculum improvement in secondary education. Nine participants contributed their comments. Dr. A. Harry passow explained that the school, like other agencies, has tended to keep its roots in the past. Othere were--William C. Kvaraceus, edmund gordon, jean D. Grambs, jacob landers, Joseph O. Loretan, frederick Mclaughlin, frank riessman, and franklin patterson.
