Description: In this startling investigation of schools and the teaching profession, Martin L. Gross reveals that there is a "conspiracy of ignorance" by the education establishment that has stubbornly set low academic standards in the selection and training of teachers and in watered-down student curriculums. This, plus grade inflation, over-psychologized schools, a reliance on false theories, a stifling bureaucracy, and politicized teachers unions have retarded student progress. Challenging the professionalism of teaching, Gross offers a provocative Bill of Indictment of this system, along with remedies that will finally give children the education they need to prosper today's competitive world.
