Reforming Elementary Science Education in Urban Districts: Reflections on a Conference in Inverness, California

Abstract

In January 1994, the National Science Foundation sponsored a small, informal conference focused on reforms in urban elementary science education. This monograph attempts to capture and reflect upon three days of presentations and conversations concerning urban systemic change. We had hoped, perhaps naively, that the conference would yield some set of clearly defined lessons. This was not the case. Rather, the conference participants seemed to agree on the complexity, the confusion and the underlying tensions involved in their work to reform elementary science education.
