The Agony of Public Education
By James L. Payne
This article appeared in the Fall 2000 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Public schools in the United States are suffering not because of lack of accountability but because they are “accountable” to too many competing interest groups. The U.S. educational system is not falling behind those of Japan, France, and Germany, but is leading the way in a democratic descent toward uniform mediocrity.
