Mis-Education in Schools: Beyond the Slogans and Double-Talk (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


In Mis-Education in Schools: Beyond the Slogans and Double-Talk, Howard Good uses his experiences as a parent, teacher, and school board member to explore what's gone wrong with education and how to make it right. He takes the reader inside classrooms, locker rooms, school board meetings, and parent-teacher conferences to discover how our children are being educated -or, more often than not, miseducated. Good demonstrates that despite the "children first" rhetoric of educators, students are often ill served by teachers, principals, guidance counselors, coaches, and school boards. Readers will be challenged by Good's candid perspective and engaged by his energetic prose. Mis-Education in Schools isn't just another education book. It cuts through the double talk that characterizes so much of the debate over education today, exposing the troubling gap between what schools preach and what they actually practice.
