A Primer on America's Schools Press Briefing

KORET TASK FORCE ON K–12 EDUCATION

Coinciding with the semiannual meeting of the Koret Task Force on K–12 Education, a host of print and on-line media descended on the Hoover Institution to meet with members of the Task Force and to question them on their first joint publication, A Primer on America's Schools (Hoover Press, 2001). At a September 20, 2001, press briefing, Hoover fellow Terry M. Moe, who edited the book, explained that the book's goal is to cut through the complexities, unwarranted assumptions, and unfounded assertions surrounding education reform and to convey the basic facts that people need to know about important policy questions facing education today. During the press briefing, members of the Koret Task Force addressed prominent topics in the national education debate, including choice and accountability, the opposition by teachers unions to reform movements, and the possibilities for real change in the future.
