Educating for the 21st Century: The Challenge for Parents and Teachers

Mark H. Mullin, Author Madison Books $19.95 (125p) ISBN 978-0-8191-8062-9
While much of the literature of educational reform focuses on the early years, Mullin, headmaster of St. Albans School in Washington, D.C., distills a wealth of experience into a perceptive analysis of the crucial high school years, when issues of personal freedom and choice confront the adolescent. Approachingthe new century, Mullin asserts that the programs and curricula of public and private schools must not only offer useful education but, more importantly, must focus on moral education, with the family playing a pivotal role. He presents 10 challenges facing schools in the 1990s, which may serve as guideposts for educators. Parents and teachers alike will find Mullin's witty, humane advice gently instructive. (Aug.)
