Conflict between the Schools and Their Money Machine.
This paper offers reflections on various presentations at the March 1999 convention of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development in San Francisco. The presentation, "Links between National Standards and Successful Classroom Strategies," is guided by two questions: (1) How are teachers, schools, and school districts promoting student achievement? and What is the focus of recent research in education? The paper examines the body of research in math, science, language arts, social studies, and the arts and concludes that this research is not overly concerned with school success, given the imminent arrival of national standards. Instead, the research seems to focus on those ephemeral areas of attitudes and perceptions that promote the contentment of teachers and students in their separate and overlapping domains. Schooling and research should concentrate more deeply on academic excellence and achievement. (Contains 10 pages of references.) (DFR)
