"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"

Editorial Reviews

Review

50 Myths and Lies That Threaten America s Public Schools: The Real Crisis in Education is exactly what it purports to be, a compilation of false but pervasive claims about the public-school system, teaching methods, and how students learn coupled with research-supported refutations of those claims. But it is more than that. The book, published by Teachers College Press on March 22, is also an impassioned effort to save our country s education system, which it aims to do by teaching the general public how it all works. --New York Metro, March 2014

W. James Popham, professor emeritus, UCLA
