High-Stakes Testing and the Decline of Teaching and Learning: The Real Crisis in Education

by

High-Stakes Testing and the Decline of Teaching and Learning: The Real Crisis in Education Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Though American schools need to be improved, argues Hursh (education, U. of Rochester), recent measures such as No Child Left Behind created the real crisis in education by undermining recent gains in teaching and learning with the introduction of high-stakes testing, accountability, rewards, and punishments. This betrayal of education, he says, is only part of a larger campaign by some corporate and political leaders to transform the whole of social democracy into a market tyranny. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This book examines the changes in educational policy in the U.S. and Britain over the last twenty-five years. Hursh argues that education in the States and Britain has been radically transformed, first through efforts to create curricular standards, more recently through an emphasis on accountability measured by standardized tests, and currently, efforts to introduce market competition and private services into educational systems. Hursh offers an alternative to the neoliberal conception of society and education complete with examples of parents who reject the current emphasis on individual success and schools that promote civic-mindedness.
