A Geology of School Reform : The Successive Restructurings of a School District
An archeological study of one school district describing its successive waves of school reform through the eyes of administrators, teachers, community leaders, and parents whose contributions both hindered and advanced changes. The study follows the Cottonwood School District (all names are fictitious) from its two rural schoolhouses in the early 1950s, through the experimental 1960s, the "back to basics" 1970s, the "whole education" approaches of the 1980s, and into the current budgetary crisis of the 1990s. The examination is a microcosm look at American education and a community's competing values. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
