Read full description of the books:
American education is at a cross-road. Teachers and
students are floundering to meet the requirements of a policy, procedure, and data-driven education system that expects teachers to follow mandated educational policies and standardized curriculum. It’s a system that coddles and rescues students in an attempt to “leave no child behind,” and fosters conformity rather than critical thinking and personal responsibility. It’s time to ask
the relevant questions. Should data drive the system? Does such a system hijack the learning process?
Is “corporate education” opposed to learning? Why do students need to be made successful in the same way? Is an entitlement mentality compromising teachers’ professionalism in the classroom? Is digital technology and social networking having negative effects on students’ ability to learn? Are censorship issues stunting students’ higher level thinking skills?
In Taking Back Our Classrooms Barbara Wood explores America’s public education system from a teacher’s perspective. It’s popular to blame teachers for the current dysfunction in the system. But many factors impinge on teachers’ ability to be effective in the classroom. Barbara sheds light and brings intelligent and poignant insight on these issues. The concerns addressed in this book should be considered if we are to
truly create an enduring and meaningful American education system.
