Sample text

A common complaint of 1950s public schools was that while schools of education required the study of teaching methods, they did not require teachers or administrators to be well educated. This, they asserted, was reflected in the de-emphasis of academic studies in high schools, and these critics pointed to statistics for support. High school enrollment in academic subjects such as physics, foreign languages, and geometry had significantly declined since the beginning of the 20th century. Critics of public school standards enjoyed a breakthrough with the enormous popularity of Arthur Bestor’s 1953 book, Educational Wastelands, and Rudolf Flesch’s 1955 book, Why Johnny Can’t Read.

High school enrollment in academic subjects such as physics, foreign languages, and geometry had significantly declined since the beginning of the 20th century. Critics of public school standards enjoyed a breakthrough with the enormous popularity of Arthur Bestor’s 1953 book, Educational Wastelands, and Rudolf Flesch’s 1955 book, Why Johnny Can’t Read. Flesch argued that modern reading approaches such as the look-see method found in the Dick and Jane readers often used in elementary schools were not as effective as traditional phonics instruction.

Public schools both reflected and initiated concern about the failure of schools and helped create an environment in which more radical approaches could be encouraged. A new openness to vouchers for private schools was evident in the 1983 Supreme Court case Mueller v. Allen. ” A dramatic expansion then took place throughout the 1990s in the use of public school choice and in the more controversial private and religious school choice programs based on vouchers. The most renowned and contested of these programs were the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program, the Cleveland Scholarship Program, and the Florida A+ Plan.
