Overcoming the Limitations of the Factory System of Education
Van Duzer, Eric
Online Submission
For the past twenty years policy initiatives at the state and federal levels have reflected the call for significant improvement in educational outcomes to support the human capital needs of the 21st century. An argument is presented on the basis of longitudinal data that the basic structure of the current system of education undermines national efforts to improve levels of academic achievement for underperforming students. A brief outline of an alternative structure for the education system is provided that might overcome the limitations of the current factory model.
