Saving Schools Hoover Institute Style
Peterson's book is all about Saving Schools Hoover Institute style. In this book he basically bends educational history to the sacred tenets of the Hoover Institute, School vouchers and choice. He blames the decline of public education on an increasingly litigious society (the lawyers) and the liberal boogeymen (ACLU). He also blames the decline in public education on teacher unions who, according to his dictates, are only selfishly looking out for their interests. Another cause for the decline of American public education is the push for more funding when, just as it is decreed in Hoover Institute dictates: "Schools have enough money, they just don't spend it wisely." This book showed promise of having original ideas and thoughts in it, but instead you get the same old tired Hooverian arguments for what amounts to doing away with public education. I'm afraid this one will go to the yard sale table for 25 cents, if I can sell it for that much.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
