As the title suggests, this publication reviews and accents the activities which took place under the aegis of the National Academy of Education during 1979. The Annual Report of the President and reports of the Spring and Fall meetings, respectively, outline: events which occurred during the year; studies, books, reviews and research either underway, completed or published; activities of Academy members; and topics covered at the meetings with selected highlights. Included in their entirety are two papers presented at the Spring and Fall meetings; one entitled, "Comparative Analysis of Systems of Higher Education", and the second entitled, "On Educating the Gifted.""The Revisionists Revised: A Critique of the Radical Attack on the Schools", by Diane Rivitch was commissioned by the National Academy of Education as a review of works by a number of scholars known as "revisionists." The essays in the next section, "Revisionists Respond to Ravitch", constitute these scholars' responses to her provocative and critical review. The next two sections consist of reviews of an "Encyclopedia of Educational Evaluation" and "Reports from the National Institute of Education on the Compensatory Education Study." The amended National Academy of Education Constitution and Academy Membership lists are appended. (AEF)
