ABOUT THE BOOK:
Based on their own experiences, teachers across the country offer ideas on resolving the crisis in education.
The conservative, bipartisan consensus dominating the discussion about what’s wrong with our schools and how to fix them offers “solutions” that scapegoat teachers, vilify unions, and promise market mentality as the answer. But, in each case, students lose. This book, written by teacher activists, speaks back to the elite consensus and offers an alternative vision of learning for liberation.
