Summary
For nearly 100 years the federal government left education almost entirely in the hands of the citizenry and state and local governments. But in 1979, with the creation of the US Department of Education, a sprawling bureaucracy with 153 programs, 5,000 employees, and an annual budget of approximately $70 billion, the federal government intruded itself into almost every area of education. What caused this dramatic transformation? Has it improved student performance? And how can we best ensure that America's schoolchildren will get the education they need for thriving in an increasingly competitive global economy? Education reform expert Vicki E. Alger shows that federal involvement in education has been an epic failure-a failure of programs, a fiscal failure, and a failure of partnership with state and local governments. Alger assesses, identifies, and articulates the best strategy for success-namely, decentralizing education policy by ending federal involvement, returning power to state and local governments, and implementing parental choice for the citizenry. No matter where you stand on issues such as Common Core, school vouchers, federal mandates, or state sovereignty, Failure will provide insight and inspiration needed for bold solutions to our educational challenges. Alger takes up all of these issues and questions in Failure: The Federal Misedukation of America's Children, an in-depth look at federal education policy that will both enlighten and inspire.
