About this title


Winner of the 1988 Eli M. Oboler Memorial Award, American Library AssociationWinner of the 1987 Outstanding Books in Educational Studies, American Educational AssociationThe product of a two-year project developed by the New World Foundation, these essays present a comprehensive critique of education and the current reforms covering instruction and the institution as well as policy and politics.

From Library Journal:

This book presents the New World Foundation's arguments in the national debate over public school reform. The premises are that the excellence movement (the prevailing trend in school reform) ignores the needs of low income children, and that schools are becoming devalued as institutions for preparing students for citizenship in a democratic society. The authors examine the mission of schooling, debate what they consider to be myths of elitism, and analyze five citizen movements for democratic schooling. Recommendations include teaching support systems and increased power for parents, teachers, and community groups. The analyses are perceptive and the case is well stated. Shirley L. Hopkinson, Library & Information Science Div., California State Univ., San Jose
