The state of state standards by Chester E Finn( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Fordham Foundation commissioned experts in each of the five core academic subjects (English, history, geography, mathematics, and science) to develop criteria for excellence and apply them to as many state standards as could be obtained. This summary report compiles the numerical scores and letter grades that each state earned in every subject. Policy makers, journalists, and concerned citizens can easily see a complete report card for their state. The report also presents some lessons from these findings. Some states did well in some subjects, but the main conclusion to be drawn from this study is that most of the states have a long way to go before their academic standards will be strong enough to bear the considerable burden now being placed on them. Their present weaknesses are great enough to be a grave threat to standards-based education reform. In every subject, the number of states receiving a "d" or an "f" outnumbered the number receiving an "a" or a "B." In English and history, only one state received an "A." When the data were aggregated, no state had an "a" average, and only Arizona, California, and Texas earned a "b" average. In every subject, at least one state published excellent standards, demonstrating that it can be done. The "Forum" section of the report contains commentaries on the standards movement by five eminent participators and observers: (1) Lynne Cheney; (2) Denis Doyle; (3) William Galston; (4) Will Marshall; and (5) Susan Traiman. One appendix contains the criteria for reviewing state standards, and the other contains the documents examined listed by state. (Sld)

Charter Schools as Seen by Those Who Know Them Best: Students, Teachers, and Parents. Charter Schools in Action Project, Final Report--Part I by Gregg Vanourek( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Although charter schools have provoked much interest, there has not been a systematic nationwide effort to ask the clients and teachers of charter schools what they think about them. During the 1996-97 school year, Hudson Institute's Charter Schools in Action Project gathered quantitative data that describe 50 charter schools enrolling approximately 16,000 students in 10 states. The data were gathered through a survey of 4,954 students (fifth grade and older) attending 39 schools; 2,978 parents of students attending 30 schools; and 521 teachers in 36 schools. Findings indicate that: (1) charter schools are havens for children who had bad educational experiences elsewhere; (2) charter schools are very popular with their primary constituents; (3) families and teachers are seeking out charter schools primarily for educational reasons; (4) satisfaction levels are highest for all three groups when it comes to educational matters; and (5) the teachers in charter schools feel empowered. Nineteen tables are included. (Contains 16 endnotes.) (Lmi)
Charter schools in action : what have we learned? by Chester E Finn( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report contains the findings of the first year of a 2-year Hudson Institute study of U.S. charter schools, which focused on their startup problems, solutions to the problems, and the policy environments in which such schools are most likely to thrive or falter. Data during 1995-96 were derived from site visits to 35 charter schools, which comprise a cross-section of the approximately 225 charter schools operating at that time. Approximately 600 interviews were conducted with local business and educational leaders and with 107 state-level policymakers, educators, and interest-group leaders. Some highlights of the findings include the following: Of the nearly 8,400 students in the sample, 63 percent were minority-group members. Eighty-one percent had been enrolled in public schools immediately before coming to the charter schools. Charter schools include schools for at-risk youngsters and special populations, distance learning, teacher cooperatives, and contract-managed schools. Major startup problems included the large numbers of disadvantaged and at-risk students, lack of capital and startup funds, burdensome paperwork, regulatory restrictions, and governance difficulties. Charter schools are most likely to arise in states with stronger charter-school laws, which feature sponsorship options for other than school boards, openness to diverse charter applicants, automatic exemption from laws and regulations, and true fiscal and legal autonomy for charter schools. The report also reviews policy issues that face charter schools, including special education, teacher unions, finance, accountability and evaluation, prevention of school failure, and federal policy. The report concludes that: (1) The demand for charter schools currently exceeds the supply; (2) there is growing evidence that supports charter schools' educational effectiveness; (3) charter schools' attractive features include their smaller size, focused missions, freedom from excessive regulation and control, and choices offered to students and teachers; and (4) charter schools foster innovation and promote accountability. Policy recommendations are included. Appendices contain characteristics of state charter-school laws, state case studies, a list of participating schools, and a list of interview participants. (Contains 5 tables and 13 references.) (Lmi)
