AbstractAngered by the continued worsening of public school quality despite 1980s reform efforts and growing business-education partnerships, many American business leaders claim that money and concern are not enough. Boosting teacher salaries and reducing class size have yielded poor results. Business's general dismay with public school performance has been aggravated by the rising cost of employee training and the difficulty of finding qualified employees, a problem which affects American companies' competitiveness. To mobilize their communities, business leaders must arm themselves with data concerning education's failures and challenge the "spend more" arguments and other commonly accepted educational reform myths. Examination of recent National Assessment of Educational Progress results disclose deficiencies in reading, math, and science. Scholastic Aptitude Test scores show a significant decline since 1963. Myths concerning the necessity for increased spending, big government programs, and early childhood education for poor children; the national dropout rate; traditional teacher certification; and school-based management as a panacea are explained. Since competition is the key to success in the marketplace, corporate executives look to school choice as a way to break up the public school monopoly and allow consumers greater choices. Businesses should insist on educational choice as a condition of their monetary investment in the schools. (MLH)
