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.

Saving K-12: What happened to our public schools?


I have a book coming out on Nov. 17 called Saving K-12. It answers these questions: What happened to our public schools? How do we fix them?

Saving K-12 is available for preorder now.

 If you feel that our publics schools should be better, and could be better, then you will enjoy this book.

The main strategy for improvement is that people understand what’s really happening in the classrooms. Namely, our Education Establishment promotes inferior, even cruel methods. For example, kids cannot learn to read with sight-words. It’s more of a hoax than anything else. When parents understand how the hoax works, then they can fight back.

 Saving K-12 consists of 65 essays on a wide range of topics.--

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.
