Notes: "Critics often warn that American schools are failing; that our students are ill-prepared for the challenges the future holds, and may even be 'the dumbest generation.' This essay ... examines four sets of data that speak to whether educational deterioration is taking place. The essay then turns to exploring several reasons why belief in educational decline is so common, and concludes by suggesting some more useful ways to think about educational problems."--Page 4 of cover.
