Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Since the 1970 1 s many school districts have experienced increased financial problems and declining student achievement levels. These problems have provided critics with new opportunities to voice their position and suggest changes in educational programs. As a result, every program in the educational system is being scrutinized. Critics typically agree on the importance of the core curriculum in meeting educational goals, but question the need for non-core programs. Some researchers conclude that such programs as physical education, driver education, and student activities are actually a hindrance to education (Pines, 1982; Sizer, 1984).
