Education Reform Briefing Book. Volume I, First Edition. Education Reform in Review and Emerging Education Issues in California.
Connor, Kim; Melendez, Melinda
In the context of the growing challenges to public education that have materialized in California over the past decade, this first of two volumes is presented as a resource document for legislators and others interested in education reform. Volume 1 looks at emerging education issues for the 1995-96 legislative session and summarizes the state's policy-making activities since 1983. It presents a summary of major education legislation over the last ten years, identifies major education reports and studies, presents the results of statewide opinion polls, and includes a demographic update of California schools. Emerging education issues include youth, school support, school structures and governance, and curriculum and instruction. Appendices contain student demographic data, a summary of major education bills passed by the California legislature (1983-93), a list of major California education studies and reports (1983-present), a comparison of the recommendations made by selected California studies and reports, and the results of recent statewide opinion polls on education.
