Education in the 80's: A Leadership Opportunity for the Congress.
Curran, Paul F.
The Congress should be the principal architect of educational policy in the 1980s through: preserving traditional middle-class values in any potential legislation, reducing regulations and paperwork, insuring a positive impact for political forces that shape education, rewarding success and fostering accountability, and encouraging diversity in education. Positive educational trends include individualized education and legislation to provide parents with a wider choice of schools. (SAS)
