Description
This is an account of the largest on-the-scene study of U.S. schools ever undertaken. Called 'A Study of Schooling' & carried on over 4 years, trained investigators went into more than 1,000 classrooms in 38 elementary & secondary schools in seven different sections of the United States. These schools were located in urban, rural, & suburban areas. The investigators talked to teachers, students, administrators, school board officials, parents, & other members of the community. The result is this landmark report, written by one of the country's most astute & experienced educators. His message is one of cautious optimism, despite the extensive problems uncovered, & he provides a realistic agenda for improvement. This report will be a rich & stimulating resource for all those concerned with the education of our youth.
