If It Ain't Broke, Don't Fix It: School Reform in the English Classroom.
Young, Ellen A. Seay
English Journal, v86 n5 p50-53 Sep 1997
Questions three trends in school reform: special considerations, leveling, and scheduling. Notes that, despite all these changes, the author has not seen any great improvements. Argues that using teachers' ideas, acknowledging social and behavioral issues, and resisting parental pressure are what is needed to help the American education system make a comeback. (SR)
