Teaching in America : the slow revolution by Gerald Grant( )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 2,301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If the essential acts of teaching are the same for schoolteachers and professors, why are they seen as members of quite separate professions? Would the nation's schools be better served if teachers shared more of the authority that professors have long enjoyed? Will a slow revolution be completed that enables schoolteachers to take charge of their practice - to shoulder more responsibility for hiring, mentoring, promoting, and, if necessary, firing their peers? This book explores these questions by analyzing the essential acts of teaching in a way that will help all teachers become more thoughtful practitioners. It presents portraits of teachers (most of them women) struggling to take control of their practice in a system dominated by an administrative elite (mostly male). The educational system, Gerald Grant and Christine E. Murray argue, will be saved not by better managers but by better teachers. And the only way to secure them is by attracting talented recruits, developing their skills, and instituting better means of assessing teachers' performance
Hope and despair in the American city : why there are no bad schools in Raleigh by Gerald Grant( )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 2,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1972, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down a 5-4 verdict in the case of Milliken v. Bradley, thereby blocking the state of Michigan from merging the Detroit public school system with those of the surrounding suburbs. This decision effectively walled off underprivileged students in many American cities, condemning them to a system of racial and class segregation and destroying their chances of obtaining a decent education. In this work, the author compares two cities, his hometown of Syracuse, New York, and Raleigh, North Carolina, in order to examine the consequences of the nation's ongoing educational inequities. The school system in Syracuse is a slough of despair, the one in Raleigh a beacon of hope. Grant argues that the chief reason for Raleigh's educational success is the integration by social class that occurred when the city voluntarily merged with the surrounding suburbs in 1976 to create the Wake County Public School System. By contrast, the primary cause of Syracuse's decline has been the growing class and racial segregation of its metropolitan schools, which has left the city mired in poverty. This book is a study of urban social policy that combines field research and historical narrative. The result is an ambitious portrait, sometimes disturbing, often inspiring, of two cities that exemplify our nation's greatest educational challenges, as well as an exploration of the potential for school reform that exists for our urban schools today
The perpetual dream : reform and experiment in the American college by Gerald Grant( Book )

13 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 963 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evaluated is a decade of campus experiments that began in the 1960's, as volatile a period of college reform as the coutry has ever witnessed. An overview is provided of the diversity of undergraduate education in the United States, and two general types of changes are identified: telic reforms, which redefine the goals of higher education, and popular reforms initiated in response to specific social and political developments. Three colleges that underwent telic reforms are highlighted: St. John's College, Kresge College; and the College for Human Services. Three illustrations of popular reform are made in the New College in Florida, the University of California at Santa Cruz, and the state colleges in New Jersey. (Mse)

On competence : a critical analysis of competence-based reforms in higher education by Gerald Grant( Book )

11 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The origins, accomplishments, problems, and implications of competence-based reforms in higher education are examined. Competence-based education is defined as that form of education that derives a curriculum from an analysis of a prospective or actual role in modern society and that attempts to certify student progress on the bases of demonstrated performance in some or all of the aspects of that role. Theoretically, such demonstrations of competence are independent of time served in formal educational settings. Data are gathered from competence-based institutions throughout the country. Chapters within the following three sections are handled by several of the eight authors involved in the project: (1) Origins of Competence-Based Education; (2) Critical Issues in the Development of Competence-Based Programs; and (3) New Programs for Increased Competence. The analysis includes detailed case studies; a discussion on how the competence approach affects teaching, curriculum design, academic standards, and student learning; and the possible social implications of the competence movement. Chapters include discussions of public demand, effect on liberal education, implementation difficulties, creating a nontraditional college, nursing program development, and institutional survival. The authors are Gerald Grant, Peter Elbow, Thomas Ewens, Zelda Gamson, Wendy Kohli, William Neumann, Virginia Olesen, and David Riesman. Provided are references, a name index, a subject index, and a selected annotated bibliography. (Lc)

Grant identifies racial desegregation, main streaming of disabled students, and an influx of Asian students then describes what it felt like to the students affected by the change.
