Education Reform in Florida
Diversity and Equity in Public PolicyeBook - 2007
"In Education Reform in Florida, sociologists and historians evaluate Governor Jeb Bush's nation-leading school reform policies since 1999. They examine the broad range of education policy changes enacted in Florida during Bush's first term, including moves toward privatization with a voucher system, more government control of public education institutions with centralized accountability mechanisms, and a "superboard" for all public education. The contributors arrive at mixed conclusions regarding Bush's first-term education policies: while he deserves credit for holding students to higher standards, his policies have, unfortunately, pushed for equality in a very narrow way. The contributors themselves remain skeptical about seeing significant and sweeping improvement in how well Florida schools work for all students." --Book Jacket.
