Schools in Britain and the United States helped to lay the foundations for the greatest civilization the world has ever known, but for the last three decades they been in a state of perpetual crisis. Despite unprecedented increases in education spending, standards are plummeting, and at least 20% of our children cant even read. Tom Burkard shows how and intellectually misguided elite-claiming to be experts in child development and psychology-have subverted the will of the people and used our children as guinea pigs in a grand experiment that has gone horribly wrong.Throughout the book, Tom Burkard highlights the central paradox of progressive education-despite the professed aim of creating a democratic society it would be almost impossible to design a system better suited to perpetrating both class divisions and the gulf between the haves and have-nots.Provocative and outspoken, Tom Burkard, outlines his solutions to these problems making this essential reading for everyone interested in the future of our schools country and its culture.
