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.

New York Times Shows Signs Of Social Responsibility

Star columnist Nicholas Kristof joins his Times colleagues Paul Krugman and Tom Friedman in lamenting the deplorable state of our public schools. More astonishing, Kristof puts much of the blame on teacher’s unions and Democrats. Here’s the money quote: “Yet, cowed by teachers unions, Democrats have too often resisted reform and stood by as generations of disadvantaged children had been cemented into an underclass by third-rate schools.” Wow!!!!!!


Well, better late than never. But the tragic truth here is that the New York Times, the NEA, and the far-left generally are the combined reason for our bad schools. That’s what I write about on this blog and my main site. John Dewey and his bad boys were never as interested in education as in creating a socialist America. From that point it's all downhill. (See: 38: Saving Public Schools.)

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.
