Future Schlock: Using Fabricated Data and Politically Correct Platitudes in the Name of Education Reform.
Baines, Lawrence
Phi Delta Kappan, v78 n7 p492-98 Mar 1997
Debunks mythologizing reform data concerning technology, inclusion, multiculturalism, and money. Finds little evidence that technology improves student achievement, that mainstreaming serves all special-needs students, or that minorities will soon dominate U.S. demographics. Americans' low-bid attitude toward education has created a plethora of low-bid school environments and high-sounding, habitually underfunded democratic ideals. (37 references) (MLH)
