Random Acts of School Reform - Will New Elections and Budgets Undo Current Reform Efforts Again?

Record #:
Since 1983, public schools in North Carolina have experienced ten major reform efforts. These include the 1985 Basic Education Program, the Year-Round School Movement in 1989, the 1996 Charter School Legislation, and the 1996 ABC Plan. Critics say the state tries too many new programs and does not allow any of them enough time for proper evaluation. Williams and Scharer discuss each of the ten programs in detail.
