Abstract

This Policy Information Report discusses a central theme of educational reform in the 1980s: increasing course requirements in key academic subjects. This report provides information about what was being studied and how this changed over time for high school graduates and college-bound seniors. It also describes course-taking patterns for 11th-, 8th-, and 4th-grade students. While supplies last, print copies can be ordered from the Policy Information Center for $3.50. ED 312 271.
