HASH(0xb31e8f84) out of 5 stars Insights regarding the future of public education Aug. 29 2005
By Barbara E. Dehart - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book that expresses the current confusion of public school governance. Each article discusses, from a different

perspective, political and legual issues that have changed the face of public schools in America. Should the federal government be involved in public education? What will be the result of such a change? What has happened to local control? What does the constitution tell us about who should govern schools? How are current curricular and personnel policies impacting the success of students. This book provides insights and answers that are critial for anyone interested in public education to read.
