Kevin R. Kosar:
Failing Grades: The Federal Politics Of Education Standards - hardcover

ISBN: 1588263886

[SR: 2145697], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781588263889], Lynne Rienner Pub, Lynne Rienner Pub, Book, [PU: Lynne Rienner Pub], Lynne Rienner Pub, In the past fifteen years, presidents from two parties, supported by parents, teachers, and civic leaders have tried - and generally failed - to increase student achievement through federal policymaking. Supposedly pathbreaking legislation to "leave no child behind" has hardly made a dent in the problem. What is going on? Kevin R. Kosar delves into the political maneuvering behind the crafting of federal education standards. Drawing on a wealth of evidence, Kosar makes a strong case for vigorous federal action to raise standards. Then, turning to the "real world" of Washington, he shows how politics has thwarted smart policy - and how we are left with the present milquetoast reforms, which talk tough but deliver little. He concludes with sober proposals for education policies that, while not aiming at perfection, have a chance of surviving political attacks from both the right and the left., 21, Reference, 11444, Almanacs & Yearbooks, 11448, Atlases & Maps, 2572, Careers, 11626, Catalogs & Directories, 11472, Consumer Guides, 11475, Dictionaries & Thesauruses, 11713, Encyclopedias & Subject Guides, 11823, English as a Second Language, 11761, Etiquette, 11773, Foreign Language Study & Reference, 11880, Genealogy, 11902, Quotations, 8975382011, Survival & Emergency Preparedness, 5267710011, Test Preparation, 11970, Words, Language & Grammar, 5267707011, Writing, Research & Publishing Guides, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11111, Reference, 16022621, Political Science, 5571255011, Politics & Government, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16023071, United States, 16023131, Executive Branch, 271629011, Judicial Branch, 5571282011, Local, 10757, Legislative Branch, 720030, National, 10773, State, 5571255011, Politics & Government, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5571275011, Public Affairs & Policy, 5571276011, City Planning & Urban Development, 16022981, Communication Policy, 5571277011, Cultural Policy, 5571278011, Economic Policy, 5571280011, Environmental Policy, 5571279011, Intergovernmental Organizations, 5571281011, Non-Governmental Organizations, 10767, Public Affairs & Administration, 11113, Regional Planning, 10771, Social Policy, 11115, Social Security, 10580, Social Services & Welfare, 5571255011, Politics & Government, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 16022391, Reform & Policy, 69829, Education Theory, 5267708011, Schools & Teaching, 8975347011, Education & Teaching, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
