Equal Opportunity versus "Excellence": Keeping the Pressure on Goliath.
Fritzberg, Gregory J.
Educational Foundations, v14 n2 p51-71 Spr 2000
Re-introduces contemporary educators and policymakers to the spirit of equal educational opportunity that animated their predecessors prior to the introduction of the excellence movement, noting that reformers generally understate the demands of authentic equality of educational opportunity in a society characterized by chronic divisions of class and race. The paper also discusses the opportunity-to-learn standards. (SM)
