SAVING K-12

SAVING K-12

What Happened to Our Public Schools? How Do We Fix Them?

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; and What to Do Now. You can read the articles in any order and dip in wherever you want. This is pleasant reading about grim topics. If we don’t save the public schools, we’re not going to save very much else.

“Price offers a searing take and some very powerful arguments concerning the poor state of the US education system. You may not agree with all he has to say but you have to admit that he is not afraid to speak his mind as he reminds us that we need to be conscious as to how our education system is constructed, by whom, and what are the intended and unintended consequences. “ Norm Goldman, BookPleasures
