Education Under Study: An Analysis of Recent Major Reports on Education. Second Edition.
Griesemer, J. Lynn; Butler, Cornelius
This study is designed to facilitate access for policymakers to the wealth of recent reports on American education. Section 1 examines the findings and compares the recommendations of nine of these reports in such areas as school organization and management, curriculum, and teachers and teaching. The report synopses in section 2, which are largely verbatim and comprise the bulk of the study, focus on these findings and recommendations as they pertain to education. The nine reports selected for examination are: "Academic Preparation for College: What Students Need to Know and Be Able to Do"; "Action for Excellence: A Comprehensive Plan to Improve Our Nation's Schools"; "America's Competitive Challenge: The Need for a National Response"; "High School: A Report on Secondary Education in America"; "Making the Grade"; "A Nation at Risk: The Imperative for Educational Reform"; "The Paideia Proposal: An Educational Manifesto"; "A Place Called School: Prospects for the Future"; and " A Study of High Schools." The study's final section offers an annotated bibliography of other education reports and projects recently made available, relating them to a set of critical areas similar to that presented in section 1. Each report or project description is accompanied by information on how to obtain it. (JBM)
