About the Book

In a shocking expose of the educational establishment, Gross describes how the typical teacher is academically inferior and trained in dubious “educational psychology” and faddish “whole language” methods. The curriculum is so weak that only one in five students ever take trigonometry, physics, or geography in high school. The usual remedies—from smaller class sizes to federal aid—fail because the establishment is intent on maintaining both control and lower academic standards.
