The NY Times reports most governmental reform efforts have been focused on elementary school students, but the data released today suggest that serious problems loom at the high school level. By Diana Jean Schemo. [New York Times: NYT HomePage]

Remer's Comments:

There are intense efforts on the part of vested interest groups to establish vouchers (money would come from public school funds) to permit parents to send children to private or religious schools. If there are serious problems at the high school level for American students learning performance, reduced funding of public schools can be predicted to worsen this high school performance for the majority of students left in the public school educational system.
