Alfie Kohn's book gives the reader a clear understanding of how bad the schools are and why this is so. One half of the book covers all the things that we have gotten wrong. The second half deals with sensible solutions to the morass that has been created. It is interesting that the book was copyrighted in 1997. This was before Obama took office. This is truly a professional and scholaly work.

Mr. Kohn does a fantastic job of showing why 'traditional education' was never actually education in the first place. My favorite parts of the book are when he tears apart E.D Hirsch's stupid and completely illogical views. I've always admired Mr. Kohn and his work. My goal is to help carry on the progressive tradition into the next generation as a teacher because our children deserve a REAL learning enviroment!

This is a wonderful book for educators williing to evaluate their teaching open-mindedly. Like all his other books, he really forces you to see the classroom in a different perspective. You must get this book if you want what is best for students and willing to accept that your methods may not have been as fair and educational as you once thought.
