Rangel, Elizabeth S. – American Educational Research Association (AERA), 2007
Calls for more school instructional time are coming from multiple quarters. Academic standards and frequent assessments have changed the nature, but not the length, of the instructional day.

Rowan, Brian – American Educational Research Association, 2004
Today's accountability systems place the blame on schools for inadequate student academic achievement, which seems unfair to many people.

Important…

Resnick, Lauren B., Ed.; Zurawsky, Chris, Ed. – American Educational Research Association (AERA), 2003
