Education has never before received more attention in the United States or provoked more controversy. The debates rage most fiercely over the state of elementary and secondary public schools. Participants express concern over poor teaching, standardized tests and politically driven curricula. The controversy has only intensified with the advent of charter schools, school vouchers and the federal government's No Child Left Behind Act. Higher education also has been marked by tensions over affirmative action and the proliferation of community colleges and online learning services.
