A State Accountability System as a Technology of Social Control: The Case of Ri by Dennis W Cheek( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The state of Rhode Island has recently embarked in a new state accountability system for public elementary and secondary education. An overview of the system is provided, coupled with an understanding of accountability systems as technologies of social control. The ramifications of such technologies are discussed along with the costs, benefits, uncertainties, and necessary tensions associated with such systems. The best accountability systems are those that exhibit reflective response to changing contexts and information associated with educational reform. The hardest part is to maintain an appropriate level of tension between state control and direction, and local autonomy and ownership. Rhode Island is attempting to realize this goal.

Education About the History of Technology in K-12 Schools by Dennis W Cheek( Book )

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

This paper recounts the history of technology in the public schools from the early textbooks of the 19th century to the technology and society (sts) movement of the 1960s-70s. Technology and society have been a concern in education but moved into the mainstream in science education and technology education. To a lesser degree this influence is seen in social studies and language arts instruction. The paper outlines how the sts movement currently is advanced in science education, social studies, and technology education. The paper describes the move toward standards-based instruction and how technology components are seen in the standards movements. Current curriculum initiatives are discussed including National Science Foundation funded projects such as "Technology for All Americans" and "Discovering Science and Technology through History." The paper concludes with a discussion about the perennial challenges of educational reform and future implications. (Eh)
