Book Description

America's public school system is under attack and teachers have been battered fighting to protect it…and themselves. Years of unrealistic education reforms, a faltering national curriculum roll-out, reduction in benefits, pay linked to test scores, and a loss of professionalism are all part of the new reality teachers face. Teaching has never been easy and it's only getting more difficult.

In this book, readers learn the historical context for many aspects of schooling they're familiar with today like standardized testing and IQs. Through exposition and humor, the entire landscape of the education system is revealed, including some shadowy figures that operate behind the scenes. For instance, did you know Bill Gates and the Walton family (owners of Walmart) belong to a controversial private organization that writes education legislation for our country? Did you also know that the new Common Core State Standards may be considered unconstitutional?

What They Don't Teach You is an accessible, entry-level book similar to the amazing Diane Ravitch's latest book, Reign of Error. It's packed with touching personal anecdotes, valuable advice, and experienced opinions from teachers across the United States. Readers will learn about the history of the American education system, where it's been and the direction it's headed. Take a peek into the classrooms of America and see what's really happening.
