Still at Risk: What Students Don't Know, Even Now--A Report from Common Core
Hess, Frederick M.
Arts Education Policy Review, v110 n2 p5-20 Win 2009
A report from Common Core finds that many of America's high school students do not possess the basic knowledge they need to succeed in the world. The report shows that, twenty-five years after the publication of the landmark study, "A Nation at Risk," America's children continue to demonstrate a stunning ignorance about basic facts of America's history and literature. The survey also identifies a consistent gap--the size of a letter grade--between respondents who have at least one college-educated parent and those who do not. (Contains 4 tables, 10 figures, and 18 notes.)
