Educational Renaissance: Our Schools at the Turn of the Century

Marvin Cetron, Author, Bill Honig, Introduction by, Margaret Gayle, With St. Martin's Press $21.95 (352p) ISBN 978-0-312-05422-9
Countering the negativism that today envelops the nation's public schools, this analysis of major trends and programs is upbeat, with Citron, coauthor of American Renaissance , and Gayle, a North Carolina-based educational consultant, finding much that is encouraging. The successes of 300 named school systems--among them, Fairfax County, Va., described as ``at the forefront of the school-reform movement''--and the effectiveness of individual teachers and coalitions between business firms and local schools are seen as positive indicators in this examination of curriculum reforms that work and others that do not. The introduction by Honig, California superintendent of public instruction, rightly underscores the importance of this research as a resource for educators, parents and students. (Jan.)
