Hard lessons : public schools and privatization by Carol Ascher( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, the second in the Twentieth Century Fund's series of studies on the privatization of public services, finds that current arguments for privatizing schools are based on wishful thinking. After examining what the actual experience has been with privatization around the country, Hard Lessons concludes that the promise of saving money and improving educational quality through privatization is, at minimum, being oversold. While this report is likely to be disputed by those who have a strong attachment to the notion that privatizing always improves output--and by those with a financial stake in the for-profit school " industry"--It will be an important part of the ongoing debate. The report, which focuses on big city schools, argues that while the magic wand of privatization must be abandoned, the efforts to solve the problems facing our nation's urban schools must continue; there are hard questions to be asked, new solutions to be tried, and the case must continually be made for new resources for our public schools, even in today's political climate

Chapter 1 programs : new guides from the research by Carol Ascher( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document reviews the range of findings contained in 10 recently commissioned reports on how Chapter 1 programs are implemented and how successful they are in increasing the achievement of disadvantaged students. Although the conclusions of the reports are not the same, there are some developing consensuses. Findings are discussed in the following areas: (1) how are recipients of Chapter 1 services selected? (2) do those who most need the services receive them? (3) among the program structures that have been used (pull-out, add-on, in-class, and replacement) are there reasons to choose one over another? (4) which instructional strategies are used (mastery learning, higher order thinking skills, and computer education), and are they effective? (5) how have parents participated in the programs and are there new ways for them to become involved? And (6) does compensatory education increase achievement? It is concluded that the success of the programs has been mixed in all of the areas listed above. It is clear that low-achieving students need some type of help, but there are some serious problems with Chapter 1 in the following areas: (1) it is not enrichment since it takes students away from other instruction; (2) there are inefficiencies in grouping and regrouping students during the day; and (3) the teaching of Chapter 1 students lags behind research findings on equity and pedagogy. A list of the 10 studies reviewed and 93 endnotes are included. (Vm)
