What are schools for

Problems of schooling in the United States are explored in the monograph. Major educational problems are grouped in two categories--confusion over educational objectives and a rush to solve vaguely understood educational problems with ill-conceived action. Perspectives on educational objectives can be organized into three major approaches which stress 1) what schools are asked, expected, or called upon to do (goals); 2) what schools do or are used for (functions); and 3) what schools should do (aims).
