The Reform of Secondary Education: A Report to the Public and the Profession.
National Commission on the Reform of Secondary Education, Dayton, OH.
After a year-long investigation, the National Commission of the Reform of Secondary Education has identified many problems facing secondary education in the United States. It notes, among other problems, that large city school systems are on the verge of complete collapse. After careful scrutiny and long debate, the Commission, with a membership drawn from teachers, administrators, academic associations, State legislators, parents, and students, drafted 32 recommendations for the reform of secondary education. This report presents those recommendations together with a rationale for each proposal, as well as dissenting statements by commission members. The recommendations are designed to evoke discussion, debate, controversy, and action. (Author/JF)
