Wallowing in mediocrity, or rising above the dismal state of education, Jerald Goldstein

Wallowing in Mediocrity discusses the shortcomings of the American education system and juxtaposes it to international education systems-ones that provide a meaningful, economical, and challenging education. This book provides a justification and means to emulate those systems that work while ridding the US of a slew of measures holding it back
