The Current Status of Excellence in American Public Education.
Miano, Ruth D.
Adding support to the view that the United States' educational system is falling behind that of other nations are 97 annotations from a variety of sources that provide a review of current trends. The annotations are presented in five sections. Section 1 focuses on current trends in the teaching of mathematics and sciences and on teacher training for these disciplines. Section 2 examines attitudes and perceptions of students, teachers, and administrators toward these disciplines. The global implications of these shortcomings are addressed in section 3, and section 4 contains 21 annotations about specific programs to improve teaching and learning in these disciplines. In section 5 are excerpts of views on issues facing secondary schools in the 1980s stated at a National Association of Secondary School Principals conference. Other elements in the document are a glossary of terms, a six-page summary with conclusions, nine recommendations, and a chronology of events affecting American public education. (MLF)
