60s: baby boom led to enrollment explosion and teacher shortage, education quality declined
70s: oil prices hurt school funding, gov’t shifted focus to foreign affairs away from education, enrollment and education quality both decline
80s: education improvement became a national issue, A Nation At Risk report released
90s: federal involvement in school reform again, academic problems still, but national standards are to get all schools up to a certain level of quality
