Description
As featured on the Today show, C-Span, and NPR's Talk of the Nation, among others, this searing indictment of America's secondary schools offers a full-scale investigation of the new educational fad, sometimes called "Outcome Based Education"--the latest in a long series of "reforms" which has eroded our schools--which supplants grades and genuine achievements with "self-esteem".
