Bruce Deitrick Priceabout this book: Saving K 12 – What went wrong and what should we do about it?
Millions of Americans know their public schools are seriously flawed. The problems, however, are wrapped in jargon and disinformation. Discussing them intelligently is almost impossible. Typical citizens don't stand a chance against the hardline educrats in charge.
"Saving K-12" is a guide to understanding the failure and dysfunction in public schools. Everyone needs to understand the weird theories and methods found throughout our classrooms. Then progress becomes possible.
"Saving K-12" explains how public schools have created almost 50,000,000 functional illiterates. Similarly, public schools can't seem to teach basic arithmetic? From New Math to Common Core Math, many American students cry over their homework and never master even the basics.
As for facts and knowledge generally, most public schools preach Constructivism, which prohibits teachers from teaching, and dictates that students must figure out everything for themselves. This rarely happens. That's why many students reach college not knowing who won the Civil War or where Alaska is.
"Saving K-12" is not a book about airy theorizing. It's a book about practical remedies for empirical problems that everyone knows are pulling the country down. The book shows how to deconstruct the bad ideas so we can eliminate them. Then we bring back the proven traditional ideas (for example, phonics) that always worked. Mix these with all the new digital tools and we will have a renaissance.
Bruce Deitrick Price is probably the country's most prolific and aggressive writer on K-12. He takes pride in explaining even complex issues simply and emphatically.
