Abstract

American education is facing a growing crisis. Confidence in public education is decreasing, as many schools appear unable to deliver quality education to all students. Wanting to return budget surpluses, many legislators insist that educators do more with less, despite the fact that classes are often too large, curriculum is often old, schools are often in need of repair, and fuel and other expenses are rising. And we face a nationwide teacher shortage that will get worse before it gets better. These forces, together with conflicting political agendas and changing educational philosophies, buffet educational processes which angers teachers, confuses students, and annoys parents.
