Making America #1 In Education With Three Reforms
Curriculum, Instruction, and Special Education
Many prominent researchers have published articles and books to raise awareness about the inequalities students from low-income families experience in public schools. Their efforts may lead to new policies in the next 100 years. This article first refers to Jonathan Kozol’s Savage Inequalities to show that the inequalities between the schools low- and high-income students usually attend are larger today than they were when he published this book. Then, it offers examples of three reforms that could make the United States a world leader in education. These reforms involve increasing funding for low-income schools, raising teacher salaries, and creating opportunities for all children to attend high-quality preschools.
