We've selected books about the aims and objectives of education that we think will appeal to our visitors.
Recent Education Stories from CNN News.
When my son was in the 7th grade and the KERA (Kentucky Education Reform
Act) had just passed the state legislature, I realized that he was getting a
less than adequate education. As a result I spent most of my spare time in
the next two years applying my systems analysis skills to analyzing the local
school system. I produced about 75 pages of reports. I gave copies of many
of these reports to local school officials, parents, and citizens. I mailed
copies of the entire set to each member of the State School Board and to the
office of the Kentucky Education Commissioner. I got very little response
locally and no response at the state level. I am making the
entire set of papers available here.
