Dumbing Down Our Kids: Why American Children Feel Good About Themselves But Can't Read, Write, Or Add
Dumbing Down Our Kids is a searing indictment of America's secondary schools-one that every parent and teacher should read.
Dumbing Down Our Kids offers a full-scale investigation of the new educational fad, sometimes called "Outcome Based Education" -the latest in a long series of "reforms" that has eroded our schools.

This has to be the stupidest book I have ever read. This guy knows absolutely nothing about the educational system in America, or about life, either. I really feel sorry for him. He must have had an atrocious upbringing! Very little of what he mentions in his famous "list" has anything to do with school. His parents and grandparents must have been losers. My kids have been involved in the school system since 1994. I have one with 2 years left. He obviously has spent absolutely no time in a school. Nothing of what he says is true. Any parent who reads this and believes it is as stupid as he is.
