About this title

Synopsis:

Describes and analyzes nation-leading school reforms in Florida.

From the Back Cover:

In Education Reform in Florida, sociologists and historians evaluate Governor Jeb Bush's nation-leading school reform policies since 1999. They examine the startlingly broad range of education policy changes enacted in Florida during Bush's first term, including moves toward privatization with a voucher system, more government control of public education institutions with centralized accountability mechanisms, and a "superboard" for all public education. The contributors arrive at a mixed conclusion regarding Bush's first-term education policies: while he deserves credit for holding students to higher standards, his policies have, unfortunately, pushed for equality in a very narrow way. The contributors remain skeptical about seeing significant and sweeping improvement in how well Florida schools work for all students.

"While the book covers the state of Florida, the issues in Bush's first term are ones that face all states and that are playing out in essential ways in many administrations. The contributors take a broad, historical look at these issues, and then narrow in on the specifics of current policies, practices, and levels of achievement. They find that Florida has a long way to go to create diversity and equity in education." -- Jean Anyon, author of Radical Possibilities: Public Policy, Urban Education, and a New Social Movement

Contributors include Kathryn M. Borman, Deirdre Cobb-Roberts, Sherman Dorn, David Eitle, Tamela McNulty Eitle, Larry Johnson, Reginald Lee, Deanna Michael, Barbara Shircliffe, and William Tyson.
