Because of what are often poor working conditions and noncompetitive salaries, urban districts have trouble attracting and retaining well-qualified teachers. 5 percent of science teachers lack either an undergraduate major or minor in science and 34 percent of mathematics teachers lack either a major or minor in mathematics. The figures are even higher in urban districts. For example, in urban schools where half or more of the students are poor, 45 percent of the mathematics teachers have neither a major nor a minor in mathematics or mathematics education.
Although I use the phrases "urban public education" and "urban school systems," I am mainly referring to those systems found in the great industrial cities of the Northeast and Midwest. Unquestionably, the Sun Belt school systems of Atlanta, Houston, and San Diego are as troubled and face similar problems as their Rust Belt counterparts, but their histories (particularly the cities of the Southeast) are so different, and the literature on them is so thin, that including them in this analysis would be misleading.
Black parents and community leaders saw these Page 22 decaying schools as symbols of indifference on the part of school leaders, at best, or as examples of blatant racism, at worst. By the late 1940s, the issue of renovating deteriorating school buildings or replacing those schools with new facilities in black neighborhoods became a rallying point for civil rights groups in northern cities. These demands, however, clashed directly with those of whites who had left the old neighborhoods for outlying sections of the cities and who were equally insistent that their children needed new schools.
