Burning cash : how costly public school failures have charred the American dream

Author: Justin Collins
Publisher: Lanham, MD ; New York, N.Y. ; Toronto ; Plymouth, UK : Rowman & Littlefield Education, 2014.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book argues that the funding battles create the guise of progressive change with nothing to show for it, either in SAT performance levels or collegiate attainment. Until the reform focus is readjusted to what truly matters (the nature of instruction and student engagement across classrooms), the "more-of-the-same" track record can be expected to persist in our nation's public schools.

Abstract:

This book argues that the funding battles create the guise of progressive change with nothing to show for it, either in SAT performance levels or collegiate attainment. Until the reform focus is readjusted to what truly matters (the nature of instruction and student engagement across classrooms), the "more-of-the-same" track record can be expected to persist in our nation's public schools.
