Capping Costs: Putting a Price Tag on School Reform
Giordano, Gerard
Rowman & Littlefield Education
Early and recent school reformers demanded greater funding. They insisted that they needed it to protect children, the economy, and the nation. This book uses the case method to analyze the budgets that they proposed, the rhetoric that they employed, and the resistance that they encountered. The following chapters are included in this book: (1) Preface: How Much Does Education Cost? (2) Acknowledgement; (3) Introduction: Are Zombies Stalking Schools? (4) Do Razors Belong at School? (5) Can School Reform Be Marketed? (6) Should Schools Buy E-textbooks? (7) How Much Should Teachers Be Paid? (8) What Can Be Done With Negligible Funds? (9) Should Educators Worry About Diminishing Returns? (10) What Drives Innovators? (11) Should Schools Change Their Labor Practices? (12) Can Redundant Spending Be Worthwhile? (13) Is Educational Lobbying Amoral? (14) Do Teachers Need Special Protection?
