Abstract: Some enduring urban social problems include drug trafficking and abuse, high unemployment, illiteracy, teenage pregnancies, poverty, and inadequate housing programs. These problems may be attributed to the proliferation of single-parent families, ineffective schools, and drug addiction and crime. The reinforcement of family stability and the establishment of close ties between local governments and private and religious organizations are suggested to reestablish high standards of work, education, and behavior in all schools and communities. Some future concerns recommended for urban policy include Federal financial assistance for family needs such as housing and job training programs, upgrading skill requirements in urban schools, and employing the private sector to satisfy such needs as day care and health insurance. 24 tables, 2 exhibits, 11 footnotes.
