High School Reform: The Need for Engineering.
Sizer, Theodore R.
Phi Delta Kappan, v64 n10 p679-83 Jun 1983
Familiar high school problems include unprepared and apathetic students, inadequate teachers' salaries and benefits, and outmoded grade-level systems. Improvement requires new schooling models including clearer goals, advancement linked to skills mastery, promotion of thinking skills, less fragmented school time, elimination of age-grading, less teacher specialization, and more autonomy.
