A Reform in Education

ANSWER


Educational systems in the whole world are changing from the initial European sources where different countries are introducing reforms in their educational programs. As indicated by the world culture theory, schools are increasingly converging toward a single international model rather than diverging. Education is a key to economic development as when many citizens of a country are educated; it becomes very easy and cheap to get labor power. Most of the industrialized and developed countries like the United States of America and United Kingdom have high numbers of educated citizens. In order to make education programs more beneficial to students, different countries are increasingly reforming their education programs. This study addresses the aspect of testing in the United States schools as a reform in order to improve the quality of education. In the United States of America, education is mainly provided by the public sector and funded and controlled by federal, state, and local governments. In this country, child education is compulsory. Standardized testing decision and education standards are typically made by the state governments.
