Preparing Our Schools for the 21st Century. 1999 ASCD Yearbook.
Marsh, David D., Ed.
This yearbook offers a view of the key elements of schooling in the 21st century, outlining the nature of the change process that will be needed to create such schools. These key elements are drawn from the experience of educational reform in several countries and reflect a growing consensus about which elements will help all schools achieve both excellence and equity in student performance. Following an introduction by David D. Marsh, the yearbook is divided into three sections. Section 1, "New Directions for our Schools--Trends and Issues," contains the following essays: "Getting to the Heart of the Matter: Education in the 21st Century" (D. Eastin); "Education and the Demands of Democracy in the Next Millennium" (M. Tucker and J. Codding); "Education for the Public Good: Strategic Intentions for the 21st Century" (B. Caldwell); "Rethinking Civic Education for the 21st Century" (T. Clark); and "Diversity and Education for the 21st Century" (B. Williams). Section 2, "Creating a New Era--Educational Reform for the 21st Century," contains the following essays: "The Role of Standards in Educational Reform for the 21st Century" (P. Hill and C. Crevola); "Making Better Use of Resources for Educational Reform" (A. Odden); "Leadership in the 21st Century: Using Feedback To Maintain Focus and Direction" (S. King); and "Life Inside a School: Implications for Reform in the 21st Century" (M. Marsh).
