This book asks the questions at the root of education: What is teaching? How does it take place? What is the process? And the question at the heart of the matter: How does teaching differ from learning?
Teaching in the American public school system, in another 10 years, could be reduced to a temp job or a micromanaged performance scripted by corporations. Who are the people behind this implosion?
As educational reforms themselves grow ever more strident, standardized and, yes, totalitarian in structure, Diane Ravitch embodies the institutional memory that no totalitarian system can abide.
