Overview

American schools are once again in the spotlight and it is difficult to read a newspaper or journal or watch a news program without being reminded of the "school crisis" and the various remedies proposed to resuscitate American education. Much that seems new today has appeared in various guises in the past or at least has a historical context that would be well for policy makers and informed citizens to know about in all its teasing ambiguity. With penetrating analysis, Outside In examines how these issues were formed and addressed in the past and provides an important foundation for understanding present concerns.
