A history of school reform in New York State : implications for today's policy makers by Gail Paradise Kelly( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1984, the New York State Regents issued an action plan calling for changes in curriculum, high school graduation requirements, and educational standards. Histories of school reform indicate, however, that state legislation alone cannot successfully or permanently improve educational practice. This essay therefore surveys the history of federal and state-sponsored school reform efforts in New York State in the 20th century to identify general characteristics of these varying reform movements that distinguish successful from unsuccessful attempts to change New York's schools. Included are three of the major reforms that attempted to change schools in New York State before World War ii: the Hanus Report of 1911-1913, the Rural School Survey of 1922, and the Regents' Inquiry of 1937. In the postwar era, the National Defense Education Act of 1957 and Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1975 are considered, along with state-initiated efforts such as the Fleischmann Commission and the Regents' Competency Testing Program. Data are presented topically, rather than chronologically; the essay begins with a brief examination of how changing contexts have shaped major reform efforts in the state's past, and then proceeds to a discussion of how past reform efforts have been affected by the specificity of their goals, their consistency, executive leadership asserted, resources, and provisions for accountability. The evidence indicates that reforms that are clearly articulated, consistent, and within the realm of existing knowledge have a greater likelihood of being implemented than those that pursue vague goals such as "excellence" and "good citizenship." Forty-eight notes are appended. (Te)

World of Our Mothers: The Women's Page of the "Jewish Daily Forward" in 1919 by Maxine Seller( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 1919 the "Jewish Daily Forward" published in New York City was the leading Yiddish language newspaper in the world. This analysis explores how the themes of socialism, feminism, and Americanization were defined and developed on the women's pages, and what advice and information the page transmitted to its immigrant readers about each theme. Those columnists cited saw socialism as a compassionate political program that would reconstruct society. Women were urged to attack low wages through unionization and legislative action. "The Forward" also provided insight into daily problems of its readers. Suggestions were made concerning behavior and lifestyles appropriate to socialist women and their husbands. Women's suffrage, considered inevitable, was linked with political and economic equality. Articles about notable women, including both women in the work force and homemakers, fostered self-respect. The importance of Americanization reflected both in editorial policy and views of readers. Help was offered in forms of advice that facilitated the Americanization of immigrant women and their entry into the middle class. Emphasizing the socialistic approach held by many readers, editors of this page educated others toward that approach, while offering sympathetic yet limited help in adapting to a new environment.
