At last-an insider's look at the insidious intrusion of corporate interests into American classrooms. Former middle school principal Crystal England makes it perfectly clear that schooling-as-business is no schooling at all. When bottom lines are more important than developing minds, then students, families, and teachers pay-and pay big.
Her book examines the assertion, and assumption, that with more front-end management and an increasingly open market, schools could experience the success of corporations-an assertion that begs the real questions:
Is education an art or an industry?
What matters most-product or process?
In each of her seven chapters, England explores exactly how and why the school-business model does not and cannot work. She addresses such issues as:
To Market, To Market
A Rose by Any Other Name
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
How Do I Test Thee?
A Better Mousetrap
No One Is Left Behind the Child
