Dumbing down our kids


Category: Education


Charles J Sykes


Copyright/published Year: 1995 by St Martin's Press


ISBN: 0312124746


Binding: Cloth

America's schools are in crisis. Our kids rank near to, or at the bottom of, international tests in math and science. National reading scores continue to fall. Despite increases in spending, our schools persist in turning out children lacking in basic skills and knowledge - children who are wholly unprepared to compete in the twenty-first century.

While many parents bask in the glow of complacency about their own children's education, Dumbing Down Our Kids document the collapse of standards in our school, the flight from learning, and the triumph of mediocre, feel-good education that is more concerned with pumping up self-esteem than it is with passing on knowledge.
