School Reform in a Vacuum: Demographic Change, Social Policy, and the Future of Children
Fusarelli, Lance D.
Peabody Journal of Education, v86 n3 p215-235 2011
In their search for magic bullets to fix failing schools, policymakers seldom directly address powerful ecological factors impacting schooling. This article identifies several major demographic, societal, economic, and educational changes and trends in U.S. society over the past several years; analyzes their impact on schoolchildren; and offers a series of policy recommendations for public sector reform initiatives that show promise in ameliorating these conditions, which in turn would improve the educational prospects for all children, particularly those most at risk. (Contains 1 table and 6 footnotes.)
