Well-educated citizens are valuable assets in today's competitive global economy, but many observers contend the United States lags behind other developed nations in providing quality education to students. Millions of students drop out or graduate unprepared for a job or higher education. Dropout rates and school failure are highest in low-income schools and among minorities, leading many to complain about inequities in the system. What should be done to improve education and to prepare students for the world? What are the most effective ways to measure student achievement? Other questions concern "school choice," the role of government in regulating and funding schools, and the pros and cons of teachers' unions. Education Reform examines these and other critical issues in the ongoing effort to provide quality education for all.
