Summary: Class Warfare: Besieged Schools, Bewildered Parents, Betrayed Kids and the Attack on Excellence offers a firsthand account of the Great American Education War being waged from coast to coast, including the reading wars, math wars, testing wars and other schoolroom scuffles reported almost daily in the nation's media. A professor of political science who was honored as a distinguished teacher at his university, Martin Rochester became deeply involved in public educati ...show moreon as a result of his own children's misadventures in the classroom. Like most parents, he wanted to make a difference, so he became a dogged volunteer in his children's classrooms and his Parent-Teacher Organization. What he discovered, in addition to overbearing administrators and overworked teachers, was a system that had contempt for the most fundamental elements of traditional schooling, allowed nonacademic diversions to crowd out academic study, and exchanged a commitment to excellence for an obsession with "equity."
Class Warfare is a fascinating personal story of a parent's attempt to fight through the education establishment maze. But this book is also a shrowd analysis of why our schools fail. Rochester shows how "pack pedagogy" has steamrolled parental resistance in promoting disasters such as whole-language reading, "fuzzy math," multiple intelligences theory, teacher-as-coach, the therapeutic classroom, and all the other fads found in schools today. Combining the eyewitness testimony of a parent with the perceptive commentary of a professional educator, Class Warfare provides a starting look at the malaise that afflicts our nation's schools and a sensible prescription for how things can get better. ...show less
