This is certainly not light reading, but it gives one of the most in-depth look of where our educational system developed from, how it developed into the monster it is, and what we have to look forward to. This book makes a wonderful companion to Blumenfeld's "NEA: A Trojan Horse in American Education", Iserbyt's "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America", and most everything by John Taylor Gatto.

A million thanks to Robin Eubanks for her tireless efforts on the issue of modern public e

I read this book years ago so my review is from memory. The author goes into the philosophical and political roots of modern education, going back to at least John Dewey

This book is effectively a 350 page rant about the weaponization of pedagogy. I am partial to the subject, hence the two stars instead of one. It's probably the worst written book I've ever read. The author completely fails to put together a coherent thesis. It's too bad, because she has some very important things to discuss. This reader was eager to be elucidated, but was ultimately disappointed instead.

I'll mention three topics touched on in the book.
