The Curriculum: The Public Media Versus the Professional Books and Journals.
Handleman, Chester
The author presents a survey of public opinion against continued innovation in the field of education, drawn from editorials and reportage in "Newsweek,""The New York Times,""The Tampa Tribune-Times," and "U.S. News and World Report." Contrast is made to continued calls by educators in professional books and journals for continued innovation in all areas of education. The assertions are made that (1) Reasonable and moderate innovation in the curriculum can be useful, but such innovation should not be allowed to reduce academic standards and interfere with the correct evaluation of student performance; and (2) a proper mix of traditional education along with limited and proven innovative concepts should yield far better results than much of the change that has been employed in recent years under the label of innovation.
