Through a historical analysis of three urban districts, Katznelson and Weir conclude that the coalition in support of egalitarian public education has been compromised both by the narrowing definition of schooling, primarily in terms of instruction and curriculum, and the declining political influence of the labor movement. Consequently, educational inequity is embedded in today’s social geography, most notably the isolation of central cities. These concerns about the broader societal role of education are also shared by scholars overseas.

The current reform climate provides an excellent opportunity for vigorous research on the politics of national educational policy (see the chapter by Sroufe in this volume). The Clinton Administration has undertaken several initiatives to enhance policy coherence and accountability. First, seeing a linkage between pre-school services and instructional programs in the lower grades, the Administration strongly supports early childhood intervention strategies. Second, federal leadership is directed at setting new national standards and designing a national examination system in five core areas— English, mathematics, social studies, science, and foreign languages.

Efforts to link research to practitioners are facilitated by the federally funded Consortium for Policy Research in Education as well as over two dozen stateand foundation-funded policy centers. This latter practice is in sharp contrast with political science, where the leading journals in recent years have been filled with econometric models and mathematical formulae such that only the most well-trained quantitative analysts can appreciate their policy implications. Further, politics of education researchers are actively engaged in not only problem identification but also problem solving in areas that confront policy makers and practitioners.
