Roots of reform : challenging the assumptions that control education reform( Book )

Research that informs teachers and teacher educators by Donald R Cruickshank( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This review of selected research on the practices of teaching and teacher preparation juxtaposes the models for conducting inquiry on teaching and teacher education with a synthesis of research on what is currently known. Chapter 1 presents several models for research on teaching and teacher education and presents some research findings according to categories of variables posited by the models. In the context of the Coleman Report and responses to it, Chapter 2 summarizes 22 effective schools studies, indicates 7 limitations of such research, and suggests ways effective schools research can inform both preservice and inservice teacher education. Chapter 3 presents a rationale for the importance of such investigations and reviews four recent studies on effective k-12 educational practice. Chapter 4 describes how inquiry on teaching has been conducted, presents some significant findings, and discusses both limitations and utilization of such research. Chapter 5 reviews research on teacher education according to four categories: preservice teachers, preservice curriculum and instruction, the education professoriate, and the context of teacher preparation. Chapter 6 summarizes the previous chapters and concludes with observations and recommendations. Each chapter includes references. (Jd)
What legally constitutes an adequate public education? : a review of constitutional, legislative, and judicial mandates by Martha M McCarthy( Book )

9 editions published between 1982 and 1984 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the law governing the definition of educational adequacy is still evolving, partial definitions can be gleaned from various state and federal laws and regulations prescribing standards for schools and from judicial interpretations of constitutional and statutory provisions. This document presents the results of such an analysis. After delineating the research questions and procedures guiding the study, and the definitional distinctions between the closely related concepts involved, the report examines relevant litigation. The cases reviewed affect state school finance schemes, the rights of students with special needs, and parental control over educational choices. State legislative and regulatory activity defining adequacy and establishing adequacy standards is described next. The nature of school funding laws, eight states' statutory definitions of adequacy, and the application of program requirements, accountability mandates, and minimum competency standards are covered. The federal role in defining and establishing adequacy standards is addressed last, with special attention paid to regulations regarding handicapped students, bilingual, compensatory, and vocational education, and research, development, and dissemination activities. A final chapter summarizes the findings, discusses obstacles to defining adequacy conclusively, and comments on prospects for the 1980s. Appendices list relevant court cases and pinpoint pertinent provisions of state constitutions. (Author/PGD)

Up from excellence : the impact of the excellence movement on schools by William W Wayson( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This critical analysis of the reforms in education identifies the political motives behind many of the reforms and argues that top-down mandates for reform will fail. Data are taken from a survey of schools and districts with reputations for excellence. Excellence is defined pragmatically by describing what these schools do, and how educators in these schools and others feel about the effects of reform is reported. Using information from the survey, 23 guidelines for achieving true excellence are presented. (Jd)
The school/work nexus : transition of youth from school to work by Eli Ginzberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph by educator-philosopher Eli Ginzberg, commisioned by the Phi Delta Kappa Educational Foundation, examines the transition from school to work, exploring why the transition is so hard for some groups of young people, relatively easy for others. The point of the book is not to add one more research report to the literature dealing with detailed aspects of the educational system or of the labor market for youth. Rather, the monograph strives to set out the critical interfacing between these two large systems--the school and the world of work--with regard for the way in which each is affected in turn by the family and the larger society. The book's seven chapters explore the following concepts: the background of the concern for youth unemployment and the origins of youth employment programs; theories about youth unemployment; statistics on employment and unemployment for affluent and poor, white and black youth; the role of the family in the preparation of youth, environmental differences between white and minority youth, the problems of inner city schools, and the differing conditions of earlier immigrant groups and today's ghetto residents; the role of the military as a shaping experience for youth; school as the opportunity matrix, and how different population groups relate to school; programs in both school and the labor market aimed at improving the employability of youth; and recommendations for improving the transition from school to work. A list of suggested readings is included. (Kc)
Handbook for developing public confidence in schools by William W Wayson( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide to developing the public's confidence in schools was issued by the Phi Delta Kappa Commission for Developing Public Confidence in Schools. After a brief introduction, chapter 2 discusses the crisis of confidence in schools. Chapter 3 contains a definition of "confidence" that guides the work of the commission. Chapter 4 is a summary of the basic approaches to winning public confidence as advocated by several schools of thought, ranging from an agricultural approach to advocacy approaches, to political and social work approaches. Chapter 5 discusses the factors that cause the public to gain or lose confidence in the schools. Chapter 6 provides an analysis of the data supplied by the schools and districts to support their claim for enjoying high public confidence. Chapter 7 discusses the characteristics of schools that enjoy public confidence. Chapter 8 summarizes the factors that erode public confidence. Chapter 9 contains checklists that schools or districts can use to gather data to guide action to improve public confidence. References are included. (Si)

Public education, democracy, and the common good( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early days of the American republic, universal public education was proposed as the surest support of the common good and the only institution that could ensure and sustain the good health of the American democracy. Is this proposition still true today? If so, how should we act on this proposition--as educators, as citizens? For this anthology, the Phi Delta Kappa Educational Foundation invited essays on this topic based on research and informed opinion. --From cover
Can democracy be taught? by Andrew Oldenquist( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this collection, rewritten and expanded especially for this volume, originated as papers that were presented at a 1993 conference on Education for Democracy sponsored by the Mershon Center at The Ohio State University. The contributors from the United States, South Africa, Germany, and Russia, are experts in civic education, problems of minorities, the U.S. Constitution, the transition to democracy in former communist countries, and education and democracy in South Africa and Japan. All of the essays are concerned with aspects of the ideal of democracy: what it is, how it evolves, and the goals of democracy yet to be achieved. It is implied in each essay that democracy has a concrete definition with a range of features, and that despite the imprimatur of "democracy" applied by a government, not all governments claiming to be democracies are true and genuine democracies. Moreover, there is a distinct difference between education for democracy and democracy education. After an introduction, the book is divided into three parts: "Part I: The New Demography" contains four essays that look at pluralism, diversity, multiculturalism, and the democratic education of disadvantaged children. The two essays in "Part ii: Constitutional Imperatives" are about constitutionalism in education for democracy and the power of comparison in teaching about democracy. "Part iii: Other Societies, Other Problems" contains four essays discussing education for democracy in Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Japan, Asia, and South Africa. Many of the chapters contain reference lists. "About the Authors" concludes the text. (Lap)
