Overview

In this lively, provocative and well-researched book (Theodore Sizer), AlTe Kohn builds a powerful argument against the back to basics philosophy of teaching and simplistic demands to raise the bar. Drawing on stories from real classrooms and extensive research, Kohn shows parents, educators, and others interested in the debate how schools can help students explore ideas rather than filling them with forgettable facts and preparing them for standardized tests. Here at last is a book that challenges the two dominant forces in American education: an aggressive nostalgia for traditional teaching ( If it was bad enough for me, it s bad enough for my kids ) and a heavy-handed push for Tougher Standards.
