Hess (education policy studies, American Enterprise Institute) says that the problem with US public schools has nothing to do with education, but with poor management. His version of common sense rings through all the corporate buzzwords: accountability, competition, the work force, leadership, and reinvention. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
