Where To Find Summaries of Recent Reports on Education.
Parker, Franklin
Several publications offer summaries and analyses of the recent national reports on education. "The Reports: Challenge & Opportunity" (Phi Delta Kappa 1983) compares the recommendations of three 1983 studies from: National Commission on Excellence in Education ("A Nation at Risk"), 20th Century Fund, and Education Commission of the States Task Force on Education for Economic Growth. "Education Under Study: An Analysis of Recent Major Reports on Education" (Griesemer and Butler 1983) includes these three studies in addition to six others from: (1) College Board (1983); (2) Business-Higher Education Forum (1983); (3) Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching (1983); (4) Adler and the Paideia Group (1982); (5) Goodlad (1983); and (6) National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) and National Association of Independent Schools (1984). The Griesemer and Butler book also includes synopses of 20 lesser-known reports. Rickell and Paul have prepared a four-page checklist based on "A Nation at Risk." Five individuals and organizations have issued early summaries of the major reports, mainly for their own constituencies. A wall map comparing seven major reports is available from NASSP. "A Nation at Risk" and its commissioned papers have been entered into the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) system. This bibliography includes ordering information for all of the summaries and reports listed. (DC)
