Synopsis

Outcome Equity in Education 1994 AEFA Yearbook by Robert Berne, Lawrence O. Picus

The education system in the United States, and its principle of creating equal opportunity in a democratic society, is failing many children. Dissatisfaction with the system has never been higher. Based on a study of New York schools, this comprehensive book examines how social justice issues relate to outcome equity in education, and suggests ways of using resources more effectively in order to improve learning results.
