Schools for Our Time: The Local Classroom in an Uncertain World by Allen E. Salowe

Throughout the decades, we all continue to change and schools need to change to keep pace with the needs of the people. Globalization now drives global trade, which drives the demand for American jobs. With the industrial age behind us and the information age upon us, author Allen Salowe recognizes that we need qualitatively different school processes and learning methods. The 11 chapters in this easy-to-read text are devoted to: leaving students behind, readying culturally diverse students for their time, new standards of competitiveness, the need for direction and improvement in local schools, and smoothing the transition. Topics include: · Defining the needs of our times · Revisiting the neighborhood school issue · Case study initiatives linking to school improvement · Partnering classroom and careers For all education stakeholders.
