Education for democratic citizenship : a challenge for multi-ethnic societies by Roberta S Sigel ( Book )
5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It is becoming increasingly clear that members of a host nation as well as newcomers have to learn what it means to live democratically in a multi-ethnic world and to accept diversity without fear or rancor. This volume, a result of a conference sponsored by the Spencer Foundation, asks a question of increasing significance in view of post World War II immigration patterns and the spread of democratic forms of government: ""What can educational researchers and practitioners do to prepare our youth for cooperative, constructive living in a democracy?"" This book illustrates how six post-industr

Child care Quality Rating and Improvement Systems in five pioneer states : implementation issues and lessons learned by Gail Zellman ( )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As demand for child care in the United States has grown, so have calls for improving its quality. One approach that has been gaining momentum involves developing and implementing quality rating and improvement systems (QRISs), multi-component assessments designed to make child-care quality transparent to child-care providers, parents, and policymakers. QRISs provide simple, independent public ratings of child-care quality along with feedback, technical assistance, and improvement incentives. QRIS supporters posit that these systems can inform parental choice and motivate and support quality improvements. This monograph discusses the development and implementation of QRISs in Oklahoma, Colorado, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, five states that were among the first to develop a QRIS. Zellman and Perlman examine decisions that each state made in developing its QRIS, the challenges each faced in implementing its system, and the lessons that were learned during the process. The authors conclude with a series of recommendations for developing, designing, implementing, evaluating, and refining QRISs based on study findings and lessons learned

Rhetoric versus reality what we know and what we need to know about vouchers and charter schools by Brian P Gill ( )
2 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Widespread dissatisfaction with our nation's public education system has led to proposals for a variety of reforms to improve educational outcomes. One highly controversial proposal would provide financial grants, or "vouchers," for use at any public or private school. Another, more politically popular proposal would establish "charter" schools, funded by public money and approved by a public agency but operating outside the traditional system of public-school governance. Both vouchers and charters promote educational choice, market accountability, and schools that are autonomously operated by non-government organizations. This book seeks to identify and articulate the full range of empirical questions that must be answered to fully assess the wisdom of policies that promote either of these alternatives. Eschewing the polemics that characterize both sides of the debate on school choice, the authors provide a comprehensive assessment of what is known about the effects of vouchers and charters in terms of five important outcomes: academic achievement, family choice, equitable access, racial/ethnic integration, and civic socialization. The book discusses the important empirical questions that are as yet unresolved and considers the prospects for answering them in the future. Finally, it explores the details of the design of voucher and charter policies, concluding with recommendations for policymakers who are considering their enactment
