Innovative changes in both urban metapolicy and in urban education are needed to meet present and future urban problems. Metapolicy deals with policies on policymaking, including the characteristics of the policymaking system and basic policy frameworks and postures. Required changes in metapolicy include: (1) development of urban policy sciences knowledge, (2) invention of new urban policy tools, (3) explicit strategy determination, (4) new policy-contributing institutions and/or policy research organizations, (5) improvement of urban policymaking personnel, and (6) advancement of citizen participation. Important implications for urban educators: (1) similar improvements in the urban education policymaking subsystem are needed for better urban educational policies, and (2) some radical changes in urban education are needed to meet the needs of better urban metapolicies. These include: (1) education of adults for more active roles in urban policymaking, (2) preparation of children for active roles, (3) training of urban policy practitioners for new patterns of urban policymaking, (4) training of new types of urban policy professionals, and (5) development of policy scientists. Urban metapolicy and urban education are interrelated; thus calling for multidimensional reforms. 24 pp.
