Saving K-12

What Happened to Our Public Schools? How Do We Fix Them? ($20, 188pp, 6X9”: Softcover: ISBN-13: 978-1-68114-361-3; $35: Hardcover: ISBN-13: 978-1-68114-362-0; $2.99: EBook: ISBN-13: 978-1-68114-363-7; LCCN: 2017946111; Educational Policy & Reform; Release: November 17, 2017; Purchase on Amazon or Barnes & Noble): 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.

Bruce Deitrick Price is a novelist, artist, poet, and education reformer. He graduated with Honors in English Literature from Princeton and lived for many years in Manhattan where he ran a graphic design business. Along the way he was fascinated by the counterproductive practices so common in public schools. He founded Improve-Education.org in 2005.
