History of Education in the U.S.: Reconstruction to NCLB  Learning Objectives 1. Students will be able to contrast the differences in educational philosophy  between Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois. ● Booker T. Washington believed that the traditional  curriculum would neither prepare his students nor help improve the  tensions with the white community. He believed strongly in the idea of  learning by doing, so he instructed his students to build the school  themselves. During this process they learned practical skills, grew  produce that could be sold to the white community, and in general showed the whites that African Americans could be productive members of  society. ● W.E.B. DuBois believed that Washington’s policy would not  benefit African Americans in the long run.Although practical training was  necessary they believed an intellectually sound and academically rich  program of study must also be established for the “talented tenth” of the  student body. 2. Students will be able to summarize the concept of “separate but equal”  and describe how this related to public education. (Jim Crow) ● “Separate but Equal” gave institutions a way to get around  integrating the university and receiving grant money. As a result 1890  institutions were created for higher education were created for African  Americans. In the case of Plessy v. Ferguson the U.S. supreme court  upheld the constitutionality of “separate but equal” accommodations for  African Americans. A way to suppress African Americans. 3. Students can summarize the main principles of the Individuals with  Disabilities Act. (1990) ● Fair and appropriate education (FAPE) ● Appropriate Evaluation ● An individual education program (IEP) ● Least restrictive environment (LRE) ● Parent and student participation in decision making ● Procedural safeguards  ● Response to Intervention (RTI) ★ Admission Review Dismissal Committee (ARD) ○ work together when student is admitted into a disabilities  class to track their progress 4. Students can explain the reasons Sputnik prompted fear across the U.S.,  as well as the ways it helped improve education. ● Sputnik was the 1st man made object to be launched in  space and orbit the Earth. ○ They believed this is how the U.S. would be  attacked by a foreign nation. ■ Both positive and negative  outcomes  ● This launched the National Defense Education Act (1957) 5. Students can explain the main requirements of the No Child Left Behind  (NCLB) Act. (2001) ● Every state had to make a learning standard  ● States are to administer annual, statewide assessments in  reading and mathematics (grades 3­8) ● Every school had to make avid yearly progress ● ALl teachers be highly qualified  Describe the ways in which Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois had similar views on education for African Americans, as well as how their views differed.   Booker T. Washington and W.E.B DuBois both had similar views on the idea of  practical training in the education system. However, Washington believed that  achieving practical training through the idea of learning by doing was the only  thing needed to prepare students to help other African Americans learn and help  decrease the tension between the African American community and the White  community. DuBois on the other hand believed that practical training would only  take them so far and that in addition to this they needed sound and rich  academic programs of study for the "talented tenth" of the class.  What were the main concerns with U.S. education outlined in the Nation at Risk  report? (1983) The main concerns with U.S. education outlined in the Nation at Risk report is  that education was becoming mediocre and because of this the U.S was in  danger because its schools left the nation vulnerable to economic and  military  competitors. ● U.S. is no longer globally competitive  ● Test scores were lower than usual in every academic area that you  could test ● Blamed this problem on schools
