Standards And Schooling In The United States: An Encyclopedia



Standards And Schooling In The United States: An Encyclopedia
The nation's demand for more sophisticated knowledge workers who can easily access information using computers requires that they be able to interpret that information, judge and assess it, and give it meaning. In short, students must be taught how to think. Is education as it now exists in the United States a mere memorization and regurgitation of facts? If so, is this a pseudo-education?
In this three volume encyclopedia, a 100 page introductory overview and 41 essays by top scholars present a new vision of education—and educational rigor—in a variety of classroom contexts and subject areas. Essays cover the most important issues in education today: the purpose of education, regulating teachers, school accreditation, testing, nontraditional schools, bilingual education, justice and education, the politics of education, learning theory and cognition, and opposition to standards and more. The encyclopedia also includes a historical timeline of educational reform and an annotated bibliography.
