Abstract

A comparison from the author′s recent visits to a High School for Science and Technology situated in a prosperous area with low level of unemployment in the USA, and a City Technology College in an area of high unemployment and social deprivation in England. The respective methods of funding and local support are examined and their implications discussed as well as the commitment of staff, the motivation of students and the attitude of other schools. The benefits are compared as well as the possibilities of disseminating and replicating the developments.
