The Dilemma of Education in a Democracy


Hardcover  •  $$16.95

An educator who knows the system from the inside lays the blame for education failure squarely on the doorsteps of the educational establishment. For more then 30 years now, educators have largely ignored the talented child, opting instead for “individual treatment” of children with lesser abilities.

Although critical of almost every facet of “modern American education,” Professor Powers shows how public education can be revitalized and preserved. To accomplish this, a drastic overhauling of the demagogic ideology which permeates most educational theory today will be necessary.
