Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Educators are faced with contradictory messages from the American public regarding public education. On the one hand, the public views the schools as inferior institutions responsible for or contributing to a host of social, economic, and political ills. On the other hand, the public regards the schools as the major, and sometimes the only, institution capable of solving any number of national calamities AIDS, drug abuse, teenage pregnancy, highway deaths, low voter turnouts -- the list goes on and on. Being both the problem and the solution, public education carries a heavy burden -- also a tremendous opportunity.
