International Journal of Instructional Media, v31 n1 p1 Win 2004
With the arrival of calendar year 2004, there are some New Year's Resolutions that, if thoroughly considered, might make schools and districts more hospitable to children, parents and teachers. Everyone desires high standards, but the current path to achieving them is affecting the art of teaching while causing considerable stress and anxiety in the schools. This article discusses four resolutions for the new year: fewer failing students, fewer failing schools, more equitable distribution of resources and more cooperation rather than competition.
