"Based on a three-year study of the National Science Foundation's Urban Systemic Initiative, Meaningful Urban Education Reform is an overview of recent attempts to change teaching in mathematics and science in urban environments.

Changing American education recapturing the past or inventing the future? ( )
10 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 1,381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
School change and educational reform are discussed constantly by the media. Despite a decade of frenzied interest, there is little consensus on the most fundamental issues. The terminology of school reform remains unclear, obscured by ideological rhetoric. What is meant by terms such as "school restructuring," "site-based management," and "teacher education reform"? This book examines social changes affecting education; amplifies case studies of school change; and analyzes the gap between the rhetoric and reality of educational reform. Changing American Education examines the nature of comprehensive, large-scale historical and social changes that contextualize educational reform and amplifies the meaning of lessons learned by those who have assisted in change efforts. The authors draw upon rich case material that documents the possibilities and hazards awaiting those who undertake reform of educational practice and structures. They also examine how the rhetoric of educational change may fall short of the reality, as translated to processes and practices at different levels of the enterprise

Education reform in Florida diversity and equity in public policy ( )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Education Reform in Florida, sociologists and historians evaluate Governor Jeb Bush's nation-leading school reform policies since 1999. They examine the startlingly broad range of education policy changes enacted in Florida during Bush's first term, including moves toward privatization with a voucher system, more government control of public education institutions with centralized accountability mechanisms, and a "superboard" for all public education. The contributors arrive at a mixed conclusion regarding Bush's first-term education policies: while he deserves credit for holding students to higher standards, his policies have, unfortunately, pushed for equality m a very narrow way. The contributors remain skeptical about seeing significant and sweeping improvement in how well Florida schools work for all students

10 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Women in the work force today are still subjected to the "glass ceiling," sexual discrimination, income inequality, stereotyping, and other obstacles to equal employment and professional advancement. Now a collection of 150 original articles written for this handbook explores the challenges and career blocks that today's women face in the workplace, discuss important contemporary issues, and offers a wide range of facts and data on women's employment.

Drawing upon a growing body of research in the social and behavioral sciences, the articles provide insights into such issues as the sex segregation of occupations, comparable worth, women in traditionally male occupations, career plans of college women, gende4r bias in job evaluations and personnel decisions, sexual harassment, the gendered culture of organizations, the effects of maternal employment on children and child care, and more. The articles draw on extensive research and studies on women in the workplace across the U.S. and around the world. A valuable research aid This handbook presents the reader with a broadly-based understanding of women's work experiences and provides a useful set of sources for in depth research. It is a valuable reference for professors, librarians, researchers, guidance counselors, and students who need reliable, up-to-date information. The handbook includes a subject and name index
The adolescent years : social influences and educational challenges ( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 904 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The contributors to this book see adolescence in broad terms - as a "dynamic social construction." As society changes, it becomes necessary to rethink what it means to be an adolescent in a rapidly changing world and to look with great care for explanations of teenage behavior, which is often perplexing to adults and teenagers themselves." "A recurrent theme in this volume is that, no matter how adolescence is defined, the establishment of identity and the search for autonomy remain central developmental tasks of the adolescent years. Changes in the various social contexts in which teenagers live - family, school, community institutions, peer groups, workplace - can significantly affect the progress they make with these and other social and cognitive developmental tasks. And success with those tasks is critical to ensure a smooth transition into adulthood."--Jacket
