Bruce Deitrick Price's BLOG. Welcome.

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

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. 3) Title of my fifth book is: "THE EDUCATION ENIGMA — What Happened To American Education.” On Amazon.

The Big Education Story This Week--And Every Week--Is Reading

Did you know we have 50 million functional illiterates? That should be a clue that our Education Establishment is lost and needs to rethink a lot of dumb ideas. I believe that reading is ground zero in the education wars. If we are to save the public schools, we first have to save reading. That means everybody ought to know why Sight Words, Whole Words, and Dolch Words don’t work. Fortunately, this is easy! Read this short, hard-hitting article: “Let’s Rescue Reading: Here’s The Plan.”

Or visit YouTube where I’ve got eight graphic videos on reading--search “Why Sight Words Don’t Work” (other titles will appear on the right side of the YouTube page). Then spread the word. Parents especially need to be able to defend their kids against dumb reading ideas.

In a hurry? Here's the whole thing explained in less than 3 minutes: "Kindergarten Sight Words: Not A good Idea."

About Me

My photo

Remain a novelist, artist, poet, and art director.
But main activity is writing about education reform (always with full name, Bruce Deitrick Price). The schools, now bad due to ideology and laziness, could be easily improved.
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 probably find some interesting articles. I have 300 ed articles, videos, and book reviews on web. Please use them in your own battles.)
