This second volume, the follow-on to Teaching Music in the Urban Classroom, Volume 1: A Guide to Survival, Success, and Reform, extends the conversation to include educational leadership, teacher education, partnerships, and school reform. As with Volume 1, classroom music teachers, inner city arts administrators, well-known academics, and policy-makers from across the United States and Canada join together to offer a full range of political, philosophical, and practical approaches to reaching kids in urban schools. These authors, whose voices are distinct and yet united, guide music educators at every level, motivating them to challenge tired assumptions, reconsider the issues, and transform their classrooms and their students.
