· A Data and Documents chapter features the text of A Nation at Risk (1983), data from the National Assessment of Education Process (NAEP) and Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), Brown v. Topeka Board of Education, excerpts from the National Defense Education Act (NDEA), the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), No Child Left Behind (NCLB), and other important resources
Over the last 50 years, historical change has stressed the American educational system to its limits. In the 1950s, Brown v. Board of Education challenged educators to provide equal opportunity for all, while Cold War anxieties spurred a demand for excellence. In the 21st century, a more complex educational agenda is emerging—driven by globalization and shifting realities. Has U.S. education entered a critical new phase?
