How Should We Be Judging the American High School?
Westbury, Ian
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v20 n4 p291-315 Jul-Aug 1988
Examines how public confidence in the U.S. school system has fluctuated during the 1970s and 1980s. Describing U.S. high schools as underachievers, Westbury compares them to the schools of other nations. Acknowledges past achievements of high schools, but argues that they should not provide a blueprint for the future. (GEA)
