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.

Flesch Update: Public Schools Need Him As much As Ever

Here's the wacky story. This professor-type writes a bestseller in 1955 that explains why millions of kids can't read. End of story, right? Happy ending?

No, not happy. America's elite Education Establishment dug in like a pack of ferrets in heat. They denounced Flesch. They went on doing all the things he said were killing kids. Results: 50,000,000 functional illiterates and counting.

This story weighs heavily in my calculations that these so-called educators are not all that interested in education. Social engineering? Yeah, definitely.

"Why Johnny Can't Read" turns 55 this month. Forever young. Here's a great piece: "Rudolph Flesch Rules the World of Reading." Spread the word.

PS: I just put a video on YouTube, same exact title, same message, just 4 minutes, and you know.

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.)
