Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Washington, D. C. Brookings Institution Press 2004Description: 285 p.ISBN: 9780815773696.Subject(s): Education and state - United States - Congresses | Education - Standards - United States - Congresses | Educational change - United States - CongressesDDC classification: 379.73 Summary: This issue of the Brookings Papers on Education Policy, the eighth volume springing from a series of annual meetings sponsored by the Brookings Institution to examine specific educational issues, takes a step back to look at major reforms implemented over the last twenty years that have provided results or, because they are only recently in place, appear to hold promise for the future of education in the U.S. The largest change on the educational scene has been the introduction of standards and assessments, which has been endorsed at both the federal and local levels. This has proven to be controversial, but also shows strong signs of improving student performance in some sectors across the country. Also promising is the expectation of more and deeper, evidence-based education research, sorely lacking over the past two decades.
