Education Hell: The Crime of Test-And-Punish Policies available in Paperback
Are America's schools broken? Education Hell: Rhetoric vs. Reality seeks to address misconceptions about America's schools by taking on the credo 'what can be measured matters.' To the contrary, Dr. Bracey makes a persuasive case that much of what matters cannot be assessed on a multiple choice test. The challenge for educators is to deal effectively with an incomplete accountability system-while creating a broader understanding of successful schools and teachers. School leaders must work to define, maintain, and increase essential skills that may not be measured in today's accountability plans.

Interesting and compelling, but overall too disorganized and messy. Nearly its own liberal manifesto, reads more like a compendium of Bracey's knowledge (often cites himself) than the structured work of non-fiction I was hoping for.
