Booknews
This critical report from the Council for Basic Education argues for a new kind of elementary school that is "hospitable and active." It defines the shape and content of elementary education as it should be, provides specific goals, describes the conditions necessary to attain the type of elementary school envisioned, and includes a checklist so that parents, teachers, and legislators can monitor the quality of the nation's elementary schools.
