Summary Annotation Unidentified contributors look at the actions taken in Texas that have improved the quantitative measure of public education, ponder whether it can or should be a model for other systems. They investigate whether the reforms represent a final victory for a back-to-basics form of teacher-centered, test-driven education, or the failure of such a rationalized, decontextualized, and culturally insensitive mode of pedagogy. c.
