Governmental Influences on Education

So far this semester, we've examined:

  • the history of education in the US (chapter 7, semantic features analysis)
  • educational philosophies (chapter 8, quiz, semantic features analysis, essay)
  • social and cultural factors that impact education (poverty analysis from last semester, chapter 9, jigsaw learning with Google presentation)
Today, we are going to look at the governmental influences on education. In a S'more or infographic, please synthesize the important information about the government and education. You can examine chapter 11, but these sites might give you more specific information: 
You also need to make sure that you explore each president's take on the ESEA of 1965 (for example, No Child Left Behind). This is a good place to do a compare/ contrast graphic organizer or perhaps a timeline.

Here are some other ideas:

  • What does the Secretary of Education do? What are Betsy DeVos's ideas?
  • Common Core vs. state standards
  • Federal funding vs. state funding
    • expenditure per pupil
    • teacher salaries
  • Teacher standards
