Improving education in the US; a political paradox.


Improving education in the US; a political paradox.

Yanushevsky, Rafael.

Algora Publishing


255 pages




This work is based on the premise that efforts to improve the US public education system will benefit from insights from system analysis, operation research, and optimal theory. The author discusses the political evolution of public schooling in the United States and how it influenced the organizational structure of education, which has become a patchwork of state and local systems offering varying degrees of funding, facilities and equipment, trained teachers, appropriate curricula, and school performance. He then applies mathematical systems analysis and optimization theory towards an analysis of what can be done to address the deficiencies of this patchwork system.
