Bruce Deitrick Price's BLOG. Welcome.

Still running at the ed school cineplex: "John Dewey and the Effete Elite." Presenting the antidote.

1) Main site is Improve-Education.org. Articles there are scholarly (in a lively way) and intended to last for years. This blog is for short newsy bits. 2) This site is pro-education, pro-teacher, and anti-Education Establishment. Basically, that's the professors who devise policy. They love social engineering.

Educators and President Kill D.C. Vouchers

My take is that our Top Educators, no matter what they say, love mediocrity. Anything that threatens their pursuit of a collectivized muddle will be resisted. If vouchers in D.C. can provide more opportunity at less cost, making the NEA look bad in the process, well, you know what the NEA will ask the president to do. His decision to phase out the very successful voucher program is shameful. Instead, he should be encouraging all possible DIVERSITY IN EDUCATION--private schools, charter schools, homeschooling and, of course, vouchers. (Andrew Coulson at the Cato Institute says: "The president has sacrificed a program he knows to be efficient and successful in order to appease the public school employee unions. If he will do this for the NEA, he will do anything.")

Fun on YouTube...I have 50+ graphic videos on YouTube. Educational and entertaining, often. Many deal with reading and educational strategies. Many have good music and need some volume. (Channel is: YouTube.com/BruceDeitrickPrice)

About Me

My photo

Remain a novelist, artist, poet, and art director. But main activity is writing about education reform.. The schools, now bad due to ideology and laziness, could be easily improved. 

That claim is clearly explained in new book  "Saving K-12--What happened to our public schools. How do we fix them?"

I invite everyone to join my crusade or start your own. The worst thing is letting the Education Establishment continue its reign of incompetence.
Visit Improve-Education.org. (Or Google Bruce Deitrick Price and any education topic; you'll find some interesting articles. I have 400 ed articles, videos, and book reviews on web. Please use them in your own battles.)
