Abstract:

A four part documentary on the history of public education in the United States. Part 4: in 1983, the Reagan Administration's report, A Nation at Risk, shattered public confidence in America's school system and sparked a new wave of education reform -- all with the goal of tough new academic standards. This program explores such educational innovations as vouchers, charter schools, home schooling and privatization as challenges to the historical concept of a common school.
