Interesting and compelling, but overall too disorganized and messy. Nearly its own liberal manifesto, reads more like a compendium of Bracey's knowledge (often cites himself) than the structured work of non-fiction I was hoping for. Read full review

About the author (2009)

Since 1984 Gerald W. Bracey has written a monthly column for Phi Delta Kappan making research accessible to teaching practitioners. In 2003 the column received the Interpretive Scholarship Award from the American Educational Research Association. Bracey spends about half his time as an independent researcher and writer and splits the rest between George Mason University and the High/Scope Educational Research Foundation. He has a Ph.D. in developmental psychology from Stanford University and has held positions in private firms, local school districts, universities, and state departments of education.
