Description: The creation of American education was based largely on myth and myths continue to rule education. The myth that gave birth to American education lies in the promise that education could cure America of its social diseases, street people, unemployment, and crime.

Myths do not occur by chance. Sometimes a bit of reality sparks an idea only to be adopted and cultivated by a needy person or group of people in search of understanding. Other times, a myth is created for profit and gain, rather than to benefit those it is purported to serve. The motives for manufacturing myths are not so much the theme of this book as are exposing and dispelling widespread current practices as myths. Myths are exposed that retard educational improvement, in the hopes that through exposure, there can be immediate and dramatic improvements in the anomalies which stem from the myths. In every case, suggested reforms would cost the taxpayer nothing. In fact, dispelling all of the top 10 myths would catapult America's school performance far ahead of its nearest competition -- for less money than we are currently spending! Sound impossible? Read this book.
