The management in an urban setting can be difficult when the proper actions and modifications are not put in place. Administrators and further more, the school district needs to put specific expectations in place and consequences that are fair and appropriate to the background of the students that they are helping. Diversity amongst urban students is apparent and needs to be recognized by the teachers and administration in the urban setting. Teachers who are properly informed of what the expectations are and the consequences that follow, will also carry those and some of their own expectations and consequences out in their classroom. These teachers that follow the district policies, which needs to be fair and consistent, will be shown through their classroom, which looks like an organized, routine structured, and well managed classroom. Without proper expectations and support from the district and administration, a well managed urban classroom is out of reach.
