The Public School System

This paper examines dissatisfaction with the public school system and describes various proposed reforms: Content revision, parental involvement, vouchers,educational technology, violence and teacher isolation.

The purpose of this research is to examine the widespread dissatisfaction of citizens, students and teachers with the present public school system and to describe various proposed reforms, including content revision, parental involvement, vouchers, and educational technology.

As the school system became increasingly institutionalized and omnipresent during the past century, criticism of it from all those concerned has also grown rapidly. Supported by taxpayers and the receptacle for millions of involuntarily attending children, the school affects nearly everyone to some degree. Its faults and failures are apparent and equally far-reaching although the solutions are less obvious.
Citizens, and parents in particular, have leveled several criticisms at the public school system in the past decades.
