Abstract

This year’s Bracey Report identifies and discusses the research support for what the author considers to be three of the most important assumptions about how to reform public education: 1. High-quality schools can eliminate the achievement gap between whites and minorities. 2. Mayoral control of public schools is an improvement over the more common elected board governance systems. 3. Higher standards will improve the performance of public schools.
