Vitalizing the High School: A Curriculum Critique of Major Reform Proposals.
Recommendations of prestigious organizations concerned with secondary education are brought together in this booklet intended for persons interested in secondary education, those concerned with the problems of the schools, and others involved with youth in seeking solutions to school-related problems. James B. Conant's "The American High School Today" and five new reports are considered. An effort has been made to: analyze the six reports; summarize and compare their recommendations, showing similarities as well as differences; evaluate their recommendations; and generate new ideas for secondary education. The final section is a critique of the recommendations and a synthesis of the whole. (Author/MLF)
