Who's in charge here? : the tangled web of school governance and policy( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Who's in Charge Here? some of the finest minds in education cut through the confusion to analyze key issues such as the Constitution's role in allocating responsibility for education, the pros and cons of growing federal control, how to ensure a supply of talented teachers for the underprivileged, the impact of the school-choice movement, and the expanding non-academic role of schools. Other chapters explore the history of U.S. education governance and propose principles for creating a new system that especially benefits the children who are most in need."--Jacket

This document describes the nature of the Third Assessment of Mathematics for the National Assessment of Educational Progress. Information about the first two assessments is provided to give background information and details on the framework for the third assessment. It is noted that objectives for the third assessment are based on the second, with revisions that reflect current content and trends in school mathematics. Information about the content domain is provided, with the six content categories discussed: numbers and numeration; variables and relationships; shape, size, and position; measurement; probability and statistics; and technology. Technology is measured by assessing the use of calculators and computer literacy. Five categories in the process domain are reviewed: knowledge, skill, understanding, application and problem solving, and attitudes towards mathematics. Questions to be answered within each of the process categories are listed. The first of two appendices lists advisory committee members and consultants. The second provides additional information on three assessment topics: attitudes, the calculator, and estimation skills. (Mp)
Conversations : 20 years in American education by Joslyn Green( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eleven influential individuals who have brought breadth of vision to their work in education answer questions and give comments on the next 20 years of education by looking back on the past 20 years. The panelists are: Alonzo Crim, superintendent of schools in Atlanta, Georgia; Russell Edgerton, president of the American Association for Higher Education; Harold Howe ii, senior lecturer at the Graduate School of Education at Harvard; Francis Keppel, former United States commissioner of education; Clark Kerr, former president of University of California; Richard Lyman, president of the Rockefeller Foundation and former president of Stanford University; Diane Ravitch, historian of education and writer; Terry Sanford, former governor of North Carolina, and retired president of Duke University; Martin Trowe, director of Berkley's Center for Studies in Higher Education; Ralph Tyler, former director of the Center for Advanced Studies in Behavioral Sciences and chairman of the Exploratory Committee on the Progress of Education; Willard Wirtz, former U.S. Secretary of Labor. The chapter titles are: "Really Stretching and Other Changes"; "Society's Most Important Occupation"; "Students--Always Different, Always the Same"; "Resurgence of State Policy Making"; and "Constantly Building." In the remarks of the panelists, a great deal of general agreement is found on dominant themes, accomplishments, and challenges; complete unity, however, is not found. It is hoped that the conversations about continuity and change will stimulate further conversation, and help guide thinking about ways to improve education in the United States. (Ag)
