Offers a tonic for the ailing educational system
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Asserting that a single standard for school excellence will best insure all children's future, the authors examine schooling from a broad and theoretical perspective. Though there are a few chapters on home support for learning , their main focus is on how to determine the culture of a particular school and evaluate classroom environment. The authors discuss and criticize learning theories, show how basic subjects could be taught in more meaningful ways, and evaluate testing, grading, tracking, and magnet schools. Above all, they stress parental involvement in educational reform. A provocative addition to the current literature on the subject.
