The call for national standards and tests created a major debate in our country over who should be setting the educational agenda and what should be taught in our nation's schools. Join Ted Sizer and members of the Coalition of Essential Schools as they outline a process to help communities take local responsibility for their schools. Viewers will go inside Noble High School, Berwick, ME; O'Farrell Community School, San Diego, CA; and Fenway Middle College High School, Boston, MA. Learn about the concept of localism from Ted Sizer, the founder of the Coalition of Essential schools. Understand the need for each school to reflect its own community in their quest for excellence. Hear compelling arguments about increasing quality through local design which puts the decisions for educational programming in the hands of those closest to the students.
