Policies for America's Public Schools: Teachers, Equity, and Indicators.
Haskins, Ron, Ed.; MacRae, Duncan, Ed.
This book focuses on the education commission and its policy recommendations and provides an evaluation of policies on teachers and teaching, equity, and uses of educational testing to assess the effects of reform. The volume examines both equity and excellence in American education. After an introductory chapter providing an overview of the commission reports, separate sections discuss teacher training, pay and incentives, equity and diversity among the student population, and the use of indicators to assess educational progress and to inform decision making. The chapters in each section emphasize policies that schools should adopt to address the respective issue. A summary chapter reviews the entire volume and summarizes the policy recommendations. (JD)
