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.

Boys, Books: Where's The Class Action Suit??

I've been tracking this mess for years: boys can't read or they don't read.

The schools use stupid whole-word methods, then compound the problem by telling boys how much they'll enjoy the Diary of Anne Frank and other such deep, literary, boring, or otherwise inappropriate books. Babies are 51% male; but college students are only 43% male. Hmmmmm, it's almost as if some schemers are trying to damage male literacy. Successfully so! For decades!

Parents with boys in school should spend 10 minutes getting up to speed on the boys/books problem. Drastic action may be required. See "50: Leading Boys To Reading" on Improve-Education.org. Article includes a list of books that boys love.

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.)
