Radical Education Reforms
Chester E. Finn (Jr.), Herbert J. Walberg
McCutchan, 1994 - Education - 221 pages
Presents a diverse set of unusual and significant departures from customary policies and practices. These "radical" ideas range from calling for national standards, to enacting statewide legislative initiatives, to implementing decentralized local initiatives such as charter schools, local school councils, and privatization. A considerable challenge is presented not only to the status quo but also to the planners of the many less radical reforms of the past decade.
