Description

This text brings together 14 essays on reforming elementary and secondary school education in the United States that focus on measures designed to fully exploit all students' capacity to learn - even those who perform poorly on conventional intelligence tests or in traditional classroom settings. The contributors report on innovative efforts to accommodate different styles of learning among students, to encourage greater participation in educational activities by parents from minority or economically disadvantaged backgrounds, and to increase co-operation among teachers, administrators, parents, students and community members. The introduction presents an overview of the guiding principles, technical measures and political concerns critical to the success of educational reform movements. Individual chapters include assessments of specific reforms and discussions of relevant theory, recent research, and current practices and policies.
