Issues in Education: A Documented Look at Seven Current Topics.
Hess, Fritz, Comp.; And Others
Seven separate reports survey the literature and current thinking in the following topic areas: optimum school and class sizes, organization of schools into appropriate grade-level groups, the benefits and disadvantages of ability grouping, the decline in student achievement as measured by standardized tests, the expansion of kindergarten programs, and the relationship between grade retention or repetition and academic improvement. All seven reports explore arguments on both sides of the questions discussed and offer substantial references to the points of view and research findings presented. (PGD)
