A School in Pennsylvania
What has changed in education over the last 30 years? Everything, and "A School in Pennsylvania" pulls no punches as it covers America’s fall from international academic preeminence over the last three decades. From the epidemic rates of childhood obesity, diabetes, ADHD, and the prescribing of stimulant medication to kids, to births to single mothers, video time, remediation and cheating, A School in Pennsylvania hits hard on the issue of whether Americans are doing all we can do to educate our children. “We need to stop blaming the schools”, says author William Johnson “and start taking a good look at ourselves.” Tough, to the point and “politically incorrect”, Johnson tells it like it is. All this, plus “A Proposed Fix the Chinese won’t like.” A must read for teachers, parents, elected school officials and anyone interested in the educational future of the United States.
