Strengths and Weaknesses of American Education.
Kirst, Michael W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v74 n8 p613-16,618 Apr 1993
The U.S. educational system's strengths are inclusiveness, superior postsecondary education programs, improved content standards and measurements, local flexibility, and socialization and the common school. The system's weaknesses are failure to educate its non-college-bound students, understand shifting family structures, improve teacher training and working conditions, and halt organizational fragmentation and gridlock.
