Overview

CHALLENGING PRACTICALLY EVERYTHING!

In ABUSES of POWER Dr. Rose is relentless in examining how power is abused by everyone involved in education. Rose believes that the questions we ask determine the answers we get. When you ask the wrong questions you get the wrong solutions.

When schools asked, "Why are minority parents not supportive of their children?" The answer was, "They don't care."
Dr. Rose asked, "What do we do that keeps minority parents away?"
Answer. 'We don't listen to or respect them, but dictate what we want from them."

Schools. "Why don't kids pay attention."
Answer, "They are stupid, don't care, or have family or culture problems."

Rose. "Why should kids pay attention?"
Answer, "Because I show I care about them, I listen to and negotiate solutions with them. I find their interests and explore them with them."

Schools. "Why don't teachers do a better job?"
Answer. "They're only interested in higher pay and benefits."

Dr. Rose. "How can we get teachers to be more successful?'"
Answer. "Give teachers more academic freedom, autonomy, and respect for each to discover the best ways to teach."

Free public education is considered one of our most important freedoms. Yet, most feel our system is not working.

    "Why is Public Education Failing?"

    I do not think that I have to prove that public education is failing. If you have children in public schools, you know. Why is it failing? Robert Rose has taught all grades in four different districts. He explains the constants he observed. They follow:
    1. Educators do not have a vested interest.
    2. Educators expect little out of minorities.
    3. Educators do not work to correlate fun and learning.
    4. Educators do not individualize education.
    Rose refers to E.D. Hirsch, an educator and author that I am a huge fan of. I base my homeschooling on his Cultural Literacy Dictionary and instructional tools. More parents are choosing alternatives to public education, because of the failure to truly educate.
    This book has the capability to change public education for the better. This book has the capability to bring professionalism to the occupation of teaching.
