The author's intention is to pointedly bring down to earth the discussion about education reform and what its real costs are, which is something that is only referred to in generalities in our public discussions on the subject. Further, politicians and educators continually compare relative costs and efficiencies within the confines of the public education realm, accepting as a given certain conditions such as large class size, overloaded teachers and poor infrastructure for both student and teacher. Having founded and operated a successful private school on the west side of Los Angeles and involved in setting up several public charter schools, the author makes the informed case that it is not a mystery as to how best educate our children. The elite schools have been doing it for generations: small classes and properly compensated teachers with time to plan lessons and assess students in congenial surroundings.
Except in the more well to do communities, public schools in America fall far short of meeting any of these conditions and, with each passing year, move farther away from achieving them.Read more ›
