Education - A view from inside
E D U C A T I O N: A View From The Inside - The book describes the teaching experience of the author in different public school systems of the country. A close reading will clearly show that most of the problems that slow down the process of education are generated not only by the uneven distribution of the financial resources, and the enormous numbers of school districts, but mainly by the lack of a proper leadership and realistic goals on the part of the administrators in charge of it. Their selection is not very accurate, and the result is that many of them are not competent enough to handle this very sensitive position. Also some of them give in to the different pressures from the public at large in order to protect their jobs and the relative large salaries. The personal experience and observation of other international systems provides the author with several suggestions to improve education in the financial and educational area of this nation.
