Education Reform Reports: Content and Impact.
Stedman, James B.; Jordan, K. Forbis
In 1983 and 1984, a number of reports were issued that criticized the status of schools, primarily high schools. These reports gave impetus to widespread efforts to improve education. This paper presents an analysis of the content and impact of the reform reports, reviewing earlier reform efforts, assessing the primary ways in which the reports agreed and differed, delineating how various levels of government responded to the reform effort, and suggesting the reports' implications for education. An appendix provides detailed summaries of each of seven reform reports. (Author)
