- Publisher's Summary
- In America, more money is spent from all sources on K-12 education than on the U.S. Department of Defense. Why then are so many children suffering what amounts to educational malpractice? Why are they crippled for life with a substandard education and a life-altering vision of themselves as "incapable"? Betrayed is a passionate, well-researched and frank accounting of how a failing public-education system continues to be forced on teachers and students, despite its nearly complete lack of supporting research or successful student outcomes. Betrayed roots out the self-styled "stakeholders" whose personal, professional and financial interests are served by this failing system. It sympathizes with teachers-many of whom aren't allowed to do their jobs, yet are constantly threatened with removal for "ineffectiveness" or "insubordination." Betrayed is an expose, but it's also a beacon of commonsense and hope. Through the "Square of Effective Learning, " Betrayed offers practical methods for teachers, parents, advocates and legislators to stand up against this broken system, to effect positive change, and to ensure a good-quality education for all of our children.
