ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of the Holyoke Public School in Massachusetts and the Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley to open a magnet middle school in order to address the problems encountered by Hispanic children and urban youths. This magnet middle school will use experimental curricula and teaching methods developed at the Mount Holyoke College. Math courses at the magnet school will emphasize problem solving over rote learning. Rather than separating the students on the basis of academic achievement, they will be placed in small groups in order to facilitate cooperative learning.
