Kid stuff : marketing sex and violence to America's children( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Kid Stuff, Diane Ravitch and Joseph P. Viteritti bring together experts in media studies, child psychology, and public health to assess the dangers posed by "tox pop" to American society. Drawing on thirty years of research, the contributors find convincing evidence that such "entertainment" can harm children and teenagers, despite the self-serving denials of the media industry. Balancing concerns for the welfare of children with respect for the First Amendment, Kid Stuff furthers the ongoing dialogue about how a democratic society can protect its children from the pernicious extremes of popular media."--Jacket
New schools for a new century : the redesign of urban education by Diane Ravitch( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, distinguished scholars discuss recent controversial innovations - charter schools, contracting arrangements, and choice - designed to liberate educators from burdensome bureaucratic controls and raise the level of opportunity for all children. The authors focus on the problems in cities, where far too many children have been denied access to quality institutions. Various essays explore the lessons to be learned from Catholic schools, site-based management, and private entrepreneurs, as well as specific developments in three cities - New York, Milwaukee, and Chicago. The contributors, though realistic about the political and institutional obstacles that stand in the way of meaningful change, foresee the demise of the "one size fits all" approach to schooling. They envision a system of schools that is dynamic, diverse, performance-based, and accountable - one that is supportive of professionals, responsive to creativity, intolerant of failure, and committed to high educational standards for all children

The last freedom : religion from the public school to the public square by Joseph P Viteritti( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The presidency of George W. Bush has polarized the church-state debate as never before. The Far Right has been emboldened to use religion to govern, while the Far Left has redoubled its efforts to evict religion from public life entirely. Fewer people on the Right seem to respect the church-state separation, and fewer people on the Left seem to respect religion itself - still less its free exercise in any situation that is not absolutely private. In The Last Freedom, Joseph Viteritti argues that there is a basic tension between religion and democracy because religion often rejects compromise as a matter of principle while democracy requires compromise to thrive. In this readable, original, and provocative book, Viteritti argues that Americans must guard against debasing politics with either antireligious bigotry or religious zealotry. Drawing on politics, history, and law, he defines a new approach to the church-state question that protects the religious and the secular alike. Challenging much conventional opinion, Viteritti argues that the courts have failed to adequately protect religious minorities, that the rights of the religious are under greater threat than those of the secular, and that democracy exacts greater compromises and sacrifices from the religious than it does from the secular. He takes up a wide range of controversies, including the pledge of allegiance, school prayer, school vouchers, evolution, abortion, stem-cell research, gay marriage, and religious displays on public property."--Jacket

External Constraints on Organizational Change: A Study of the New York City School System by Joseph P Viteritti( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is the report of a study that examined the relationship between the New York City school system and the external (social and political) environment of which the school system is a part. The study had two purposes: first, to determine the impact that external constituents of the school system have on internal policymaking and implementation; and second, to determine the extent to which these external constituents represent the wants and needs of the clientele which the school system is supposed to serve. It was hypothesized (1) that constituents to which the central administration must respond are so diverse that they function as an obstacle to internal governance and control, (2) that conflicting demands imposed by these constituents inhibit the establishment of unified policy, and (3) that the external constituents are neither representative of nor responsive to the clientele served by the central administration. In order to test the hypotheses, five case studies (presented in this report) concerning major policy issues were conducted. Issues explored in these studies were (respectively) (1) budget development during three fiscal years (fy80, fy81, fy82); (2) the upgrading of minimum competency standards for elementary and secondary grades; (3) implementation of measures to comply with a Federal Court mandate enforcing the Education for All Handicapped Children Act; (4) enforcement of a Federal order by the U.S. Office for Civil Rights to desegregate an intermediate school (I.S. 241) in Queens; and (5) an attempt by central school officials to amend state law establishing formal procedures for disciplining and removing unsatisfactory teaching personnel. The report concludes with discussions of the politics of education in New York City, and dilemmas faced by the central administration in responding to diverse groups. Recommendations are also presented for reducing conflicts between governing boards, decision makers, and interest groups. (Gc)
