*A science class that decorates rocks instead of classifying them.
*A math class that writes essay questions rather than learning math facts.
*A reading book based on guesswork and pictures.
*A school board that seems to have forgotten why it was elected.
What do all these have in common? All are part of an effort to change the way our children are taught and what they learn. Elaine McEwan, a former teacher, principal, and district administrator, has been in the thick of education for decades. Now she writes about the subtle changes in teaching and curriculum that have resulted in nothing short of an overthrow of education as we know it.
Every parent should be aware of these changes. Every teacher should be educated about what the changes mean. Every taxpayer should know what the tax dollars are supporting. This book will open your eyes.
