Bossone, Richard M., Ed.; Polishook, Irwin H., Ed.
These proceedings from a conference on restructuring the schools present a variety of perspectives for instituting educational change. Consideration of the theme allowed a review of the failures of educational reform, and a survey of current trends. There was a call for less rhetoric and more attention to comprehensive insights and plans that will bring about the needed change.
