Présentation de l'éditeur

Two of the most respected voices in education and a team of young education scholars identify 50 myths and lies that threaten America's public schools. With hard-hitting information and a touch of comic relief, Berliner, Glass, and their Associates separate fact from fiction in this comprehensive look at modern education reform. They explain how the mythical failure of public education has been created and perpetuated in large part by political and economic interests that stand to gain from its destruction. They also expose a rapidly expanding variety of organizations and media that intentionally misrepresent facts. Many of these organizations also suggest that their goal is unbiased service in the public interest when, in fact, they represent narrow political and financial interests. Where appropriate, the authors name the promoters of these deceptions and point out how they are served by encouraging false beliefs.

This provocative book features short essays on important topics to provide every elected representative, school administrator, school board member, teacher, parent, and concerned citizen with much food for thought, as well as reliable knowledge from authoritative sources.

“Berliner and Glass are long-time critics of wrong-headed education reforms. 50 Myths and Lies continues their record of evidence-based truth-telling. Joined by 19 young scholars in identifying 50 of the worst ideas for changing our nation's schools, they are able to sort through the cacophony of today’s all too often ill-informed debate. Anyone involved in making decisions about today’s schools should read this book.”

Linda Darling-Hammond, Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education, Stanford University


“This book is true grit. It’s the gritty reality of hard data. It’s the irritating grit that makes you shift in your seat. And it’s the grit that sometimes makes you want to weep. Well argued, well written—whether you agree or disagree with this book, if you care about the future of public education, you mustn’t ignore it.”

Andy Hargreaves, professor, Thomas More Brennan Chair in Education, Lynch School of Education, Boston College


50 Myths and Lies is a powerful defense of public education and a discerning refutation of the reckless misimpressions propagated by a juggernaut of private-sector forces and right-wing intellectuals who would gladly rip apart the legacy of democratic schooling in America. It is a timely and hard-hitting book of scholarly but passionate polemic. The teachers of our children will be grateful.”

Jonathan Kozol, educator, author of Fire in the Ashes


“What do you get when two world-class scholars and a team of talented analysts take a hard look at 50 widely held yet unsound beliefs about U.S. public schools? Well, in this instance you get a flat-out masterpiece that, by persuasively blending argument and evidence, blasts those beliefs into oblivion. Required reading? You bet!”

W. James Popham, professor emeritus, UCLA


David C. Berliner is an educational psychologist and bestselling author. He was professor and dean of the Mary Lou Fulton Institute and Graduate School of Education at Arizona State University. Gene V Glass is a senior researcher at the National Education Policy Center and a research professor in the School of Education at the University of Colorado Boulder. TheirAssociates are the hand-picked leading PhDs and PhDs in training from their respective institutions.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fun read about some of the most important bits of misinformation and wrongheadedness 15 mars 2014
Par dcaudio - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Five stars because it presses against mainstream myths that are really troubling. Why do so many people believe such backwards things about schooling in America? The book makes clear that the direction school policies are headed is driven more by corporate greed, capitalism, and just plain stupidity and less by good sense. The authors make it fun to read about all the misinformation and obfuscation that surrounds testing, school purposes, charter schools, STEM, the impact of teachers, and a host of other important topics. Definitely recommended.

This accessible volume takes on the beliefs that most parents, students and teachers hold about schools. Homework, suspensions, charters, etc the hype is exposed and the smoke is cleared. It is about time that the most prevalent myths were available in one text. Make sure your child's superintendent has a copy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Detailed Rebuttals to Lies Reformers Spout with Impunity 3 mai 2014

This is a book every teacher and parent should own...and if nothing else, should study the table of contents. Berliner and Glass (and associates -- makes me wonder how much Berliner really wrote) organize the myths and lies we hear every day from critics and reformers, and debunk them with research. I have learned the hard way, often research is frowned upon by people who've already made up their minds, but I keep sharing anyway.

Several of the issues -- testing, charters, funding,
TFA, vouchers, resegregation of schools, tax credits, homework, flunking based on test scores, longer school days and years, unions, are discussed at length. It's quote-able, and I've quoted.

I will keep this book close at hand as the next Legislative Session begins. I'll be able to turn immediately to lots of issues and counter their silly arguments. Will I change their minds? Probably not. But they'll know I was there

This is a must read during these tumultuous times for educators worried about the "Corporate Reformers" who are trying to privatize public education. If you have read Diane Ravitch's book "Reign of Error..." you will appreciate this book!

A good read that is well-substantiated by an abundance of research. It would be wonderful if policy makers and the news media read it.
