Why I Sued California

Engelmann, S.
Abstract:
This article examines Siegfried Engelmann’s lawsuit against the California State Board, Department of Education and Curriculum Commission. Engelmann’s lawsuit was intended to reverse the education practices of the state of California, which were theoretically based and supported by peripheral data or anecdotal information, instead of field data. Engelmann argued that no one in the decision making hierarchy had an expert understanding of teaching or management and were not willing to adjust teaching practices to create equity. Additionally Engelmann critiqued the current teaching practices, which promoted whole language instruction as well as the justifications for their implementation. He also addresses the issues of legal compliance and content evaluation for the current teaching practices and the DISTAR Reading Mastery program.
