Description

The public education system in the United States has always been a pressing matter, subject to continuous debate. Sweeping educational reforms passed in 2001 sharply divided teachers and policy makers over the direction of our nation's schools. Proponents say the changes increase accountability and open doors to new options for parents of children in failing institutions. Critics charge that the bill's intent and impact are quite different as poor, urban schools are tagged as failures and marked for closure at the same time the students are denied entrance to better-funded, higher-performing schools. ""Educational Standards"" clearly and fairly explores both sides of the debate surrounding this critical issue.

Review quote

"Unlike similar titles in a number of other series, these books were written by individual authors and offer clear, well-supported theories that make use of many examples...these volumes have a definite place in libraries where material on these topics is needed for more adept readers and researchers."
