School systems would be wise to invest in research-validated commercial curriculums. Students should read many books. Poorly Functioning Data Management Systems Given the great needs of the students served by them, urban school systems are often under resourced. Urban school districts tend to have ineffective or underutilized data management systems (MDRC, ), making it difficult for them to identify student needs and monitor student progress.

      Urban school systems are uncomfortable with the principle of student or teacher choice of assignment; they prefer a system in which all schools are as nearly identical as possible, with students. Urban environmental issues and urban planning provide rich opportunities to develop contexualized projects/assignments for urban students: documented examples include water quality (Pardi et al., ), regional development plans (Abolins, ), urbanization and landscape change (Massey et al., ; Wagner, ), urban heat island issues.
