Many factors complicate the education of urban students. Among them have been issues related to population density; racial, ethnic, cultural, and linguistic diversity; poverty; racism (individual and institutional); and funding levels. Although urban educators have been addressing these issues for decades, placing them under the umbrella of "urban education" and treating them as a specific area of practice and inquiry is relatively recent. Despite the wide adoption of the term a consensus about its meaning exists at only the broadest of levels. In short, urban education remains an ill-defined concept.
This comprehensive volume addresses this definitional challenge and provides a 3-part conceptual model in which the achievement of equity for all -- regardless of race, gender, or ethnicity - is an ideal that is central to urban education. The model also posits that effective urban education requires attention to the three central issues that confronts all education systems (a) accountability of individuals and the institutions in which they work, (b) leadership, which occurs in multiple ways and at multiple levels, and (c) learning, which is the raison d'etre of education. Just as a three-legged stool would fall if any one leg were weak or missing, each of these areas is essential to effective urban education and affects the others.
There has been growing attention to urban agriculture (UA) worldwide because of its role in making cities more sustainable from an environmental perspective while also contributing to the role farming and gardening in the city contribute to social justice. This edited volume brings together current research and case material about urban agriculture from both the Global North (GN) and the Global South (GS). Its objective is to help bridge the long-standing divide between discussion of UA in the GS and GN and to demonstrate that today there are greater areas of overlap than difference both theoretically and substantively and that research in one area can help inform the other. Themes to be included in the book are urban agriculture and how this supports livelihoods, provides ecosystem services and community development; UA and social capital, networks, and agro-biodiversity conservation. The book explains what have we learned regarding UA in one part of the world that may be applicable elsewhere. It also examines, quite fundamentally, why do people farm in the city and how can UA contribute to more sustainable cities in both the GN and GS?
