With American public education caught in a dual crisis—of both its performance and its legitimacy—educational governance has found itself increasingly on trial or under attack. This yearbook examines the sources of both crises and assesses the startling range of reform measures—many of which would, not so long ago, have seemed unthinkable—that are now being adopted. Authors include Jane Hannaway, Kenneth Strike, Tyll van Geel, Paul Hill, Allan Odden, Luvern Cunningham, Michael Kirst, James Cibulka, Jack Jennings, Bruce Cooper, Charles Taylor Kerchner, Frederick Hess, Joseph Cronin, Michael Usdan, Carolyn Herrington, and Frances Fowler.
Michael W. Apple | Educational Review
"Issues of school finance, standards, choice, centralization/decentralization, accountability, the difficulties for administrators and policy-makers in coping with these and other transformations, and similar movements and problems are at the centre of American Governance on Trial. . . . If one is looking for a clear picture of how a considerable number of people in educational policy studies and educational administration think about these problems, then the book is a good place to start."
