This book is a classic. So concise and so powerful, it applies perfectly to the ongoing debate on progressive vs. traditional schooling. His points of view and arguments are convincing, offering us educators a good chance to rethink what our practice is all about, instead of just going with the flow and teaching the way we were taught. His arguments, after being criticized for his progressive position, are not as radical, extremely rational and well put. It is far from being boring; this tiny book carries so much in it, you can easily read it quicker than you'd read your morning newspaper.

The magnitude of the education crisis in America is beyond belief. When will educators confront the real issues, namely The "15 Stumbling Blocks of Academic Failure" that cheat most students out of an education. You will find a more in-depth analysis of the core issues underlying the malfunctioning American education system in Sugar's "The Silent Crisis Destroying America's Brightest Minds." This book is saving lives, one child at a time. She rescued my kids from the brink with the ACANDY Processing Tools, the new learning technology, that empowers all students for academic success (smartgrades.com). We are all tired of crappy educational theories that don't add up to much and as a result, don't deliver results. Sugar is the real "Deliverer" of America's forsaken children.

I had to read this book for a college course. I'm sure that John Dewey is trying to say something, I'm sure it also makes sense...just not to me. Reading this book is like watching paint dry. It's dry and I get the feeling like he's using million dollar words just to give you bang for your buck. If it were not for class I would never have brought this. The book is less than 100 pgs. and I've been reading it for three weeks. I can read a novel in a day. Educational, maybe...boring without a doubt. Confusing and dry (again).
