Public schools are a vast money pit. Education officials seem to prefer inefficiency and mediocrity. We could have better schools at less cost. This book explains how.
Bruce Deitrick Price is the country’s most prolific and aggressive writer on education. He is good at explaining the root causes, the problems that typically occur, and the ideological obsessions that lead our Education Establishment astray.
This book presents 65 articles divided into 10 themes: Reading; Math; Weird Theories and Methods; Common Core; Historical Background; Guilty as Charged; Where Are Our Leaders; What to Do Now; and others. You can read the articles in any order and dip in wherever you want. This is lively reading about grim topics. If we don’t save the public schools, we’re not going to save very much else.
The author’s goal is to make sure the public understands the dysfunctional theories and methods found in our classrooms. An informed public is the only weapon that can work against the Education Establishment’s control.
The education debate in the US is almost comatose. We need to take that debate to a much higher level. Please use this book to stir discussion.
