Abstract

An approach to urban education developed within comparative education is discussed. Its foundation in reflective thinking and critical rationalism is explained. Another approach related to urban social theory is identified. A range of such theories are examined. It is not seen as possible to reconcile the two approaches. General urban educational issues are discussed indicating ways in which each approach may be used. Conflict framework is examined as a means of identifying some (limited) common ground between the two approaches. The constituents of conflict in urban education are specified. The conflict framework is then used to discuss the changing pattern of educational provision for children perceived to have special needs in the U.K and the U.S.A. This framework allows both the large-scale and small-scale conflicts in this area of education to be revealed.
