Robert Halpern

Drawing on his studies of system-building in four cities — Boston, Chicago, Seattle, and Baltimore — Professor Robert Halpern analyzes the tasks, questions, and challenges associated with system-building in the after-school field, focusing on city-level efforts.

This study was published in Critical Issues in After-School Programming, a monograph of the Herr Research Center for Children and Social Policy exploring the expectations, goals, potential, and challenges of after-school care in the United States at the start of the 21st century.
