Book Description:

The United States spends more per elementary and secondary student than any other industrialized country except Switzerland. Yet in a 1995 study, U.S. students ranked well below the international average in math and science. Five years later, U.S. students had made the least progress—not only in math and science, but in the essential skill of reading.

About the Author:

Brenda Edgerton Conley is chair of teacher education programs and assistant professor in the graduate school at the University of Maryland University College, Adelphi, MD.

Book Description ABC-CLIO, United States, 2002. Hardback. Condition: New. Annotated edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. An examination of the growth and development of alternative schools in American society and their role in the public school environment.In Alternative Schools: A Reference Handbook, educator Brenda Edgerton Conley surveys the emerging alternatives to our conventional educational system-a system that is not only costly, but ineffective for many children.In a resource aimed at a broad audience-school administrators, politicians, and, most important, parents-Conley offers both a historical and a present-day perspective on alternative educational programs. What sets the alternative education movement apart, she argues, is its acknowledgment that we all learn differently. That knowledge has given rise to an explosion of exciting alternatives-from open schools to home schooling, from charter schools to church schools. These alternative schools are smaller and less bureaucratic, more responsive to the community, and more receptive to change.* Describes the latest learning options, from blue-ribbon schools to virtual schools* Offers a detailed blueprint for organizing and administering alternative schools.
