This paper discusses three concepts in education. They are the idea of homeschooling, the educational reform of the 1980s and school vouchers, and the No Child Left Behind Act. Through the use of professional references the paper discusses the pros and cons of each of these types of school reform. The paper further draws conclusions based on these issues and makes suggestions for future educational reform.

From the Paper:

"In the 1980s it was evident to most citizens that school reform was needed across the United States. Parents believed that their children were not receiving the type of education that was needed for them to be successful in the world, and Federal and State governments were beginning to enact laws that ensured that school reform would begin (Cookson 1994). In some cities, (most notably Chicago), there was a plan instituting parents panels that would address educational issues within the public school system. These panels ensured that parents had a say in how their children were educated, and in the process of education itself (Cookson 1994). Yet, this was not the final criterion that would solve issues involved in education reform."
