Thomas, Thomas C.; Larson, Meredith A.
This booklet is part of a set of background policy papers intended to provide a basis for analyzing recent experience and outlining future social and educational issues. The particular paper reviews major educational trends and indicators over the past 20 years and then discusses the issues the authors believe will be uppermost in policy debates during the next decade. Major topics discussed include trends and policy issues in postsecondary education, elementary and secondary school enrollment and finance, curriculum and pedagogical innovations in schools, and societal forces and the role of the policy-makers.
