Reform from the Center

by William R. Torbert - 1990

The contributions to this volume attack the problem of providing quality mass education from all sides. From Cunningham's review in chapter I of previous yearbooks of the National Society for the Study of Education, through Mitchell's sardonic reflections on educators' fixation with the prefix "re" in chapter 3, to Murphy's listing of thirty-two reform reports issued during the 1980s in chapter 11, the foregoing chapters repeatedly document the ongoing and intensifying—but at the same time faltering and despairing—attempts to provide quality mass education in the United States.
