Policy maker’s worry about statistics, parents worry about their children (34). Because of the changing technologies- Home, School and Church are no longer the primary educator-therefore there needs to be a change in the system (34). Four areas of goals for schools: 1. Academic 2. Vocational (productive work, economic responsibility) 3. Social and Civic 4. Personal (37) Parents want all 4 goals to be filled, but policy makers aren’t hearing this (39).  2.  Sizer, T.  (1984).  Prologue:  Horace’s Compromise (pp. 9 – 21).   Horace’s Compromise:  The Dilemma of the American High School . Boston:  Houghton-Mifflin. b)  What is  Horace’s “compromise”?   “Most jobs in the real world have a gap between what would be nice and what is possible.” Hoarse deals with this reality in his High school English teaching job. He is forced to  be ‘realistic’ with his time spent teaching his students. Instead of assigning 2 papers a week he is forced to reduce his assignment load to 1. Horace doesn’t have enough time to

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
