Taking the Measure of American Education Reform: An Assessment of the Education Reports.
Shanker, Albert
American Journal of Education, v92 n3 p314-24 May 1984
Identifies "universal" themes of educational reform reports: improved teacher salaries/teacher quality; more traditional curricula with higher percentage of required courses; higher achievement standards; improved discipline; and stronger school-business ties. Criticizes reports for not tackling problems of principal-teacher authority relationship, consequences of higher standards, and why schools have failed. (CMG)
