This paper presents a detailed examination of education reform with the focus being placed on inner city schools. The writer explores many articles in the quest to determine whether or not the reform efforts in the inner city schools have been successful. The writer argues that while intentions may have been good the reform has not worked and will not work until there are also inner city community reforms as well.

From the Paper:

"For several decades the American public has been demanding changes in the public education system. The children in inner city schools have come under fire for years as being treated as the redheaded stepchild of the education system. Inner city schools have long since been accepted as substandard compared to other schools in funding, equipment, technology and other areas. These deficits have caused the inner city students to fall behind academically from their rural peers. The public and many government agencies have demanded education reform as well. Education reform has targeted many aspects of the nation's educational system to try and improve delivery as well as results. The reform measures for the American public education system have targeted the inner city schools as well as the others. Inner city schools have recently come under public scrutiny because of the obvious and blatant deficits that they are enduring regarding things like computers, textbook availability and other matters.
