Secondary Education Reform: Retrospect and Prospect.
Passow, A. Harry
In these lectures the author examines current criticisms of secondary education in light of the history of secondary education reform and then discusses future prospects for reform as they relate to the place of secondary education in modern American society. The author begins by presenting a retrospective analysis of a number of studies and reform proposals dating from 1893 to 1972. He then examines the current spate of reports and reform proposals, identifying and discussing 11 themes that seem to be common. He concludes by examining future prospects and likely directions for secondary education reform, based on this analysis of the history of educational reform and current social and educational trends.
