Synopsis:

A description and critique of education reform in the United States since the 1950s, focusing on the current condition of American schools and efforts to increase both educational opportunity and overall excellence.


· Includes biographical sketches of school reformers and other influential figures in education reform in the United States, including David Berliner, Rod Paige, Nel Noddings, and Gloria Ladson Billings

· 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

Book Description:

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?
