Who Cares about Public School Education?
Hicks, John M.
Phi Delta Kappan, v81 n5 p398-401 Jan 2000
Public education is not highly supported by the American public, who put economics first. The GI Bill and Cold War era prove that point. Schools have suffered from bad press, ultraconservatism, provincialism, teacher nonprofessionalism, commercialism, gambling, student fundraising, misplaced government/parental priorities, an uninviting work environment, and low status.
