The comedy is the off target comments about educational reform made by educators, business leaders, secretaries of education, presidents, and congress. Mathematical impossibilities, pompous postmodern pap, seemingly scholarly non sequiturs, and lot of other nonsense give us much to laugh about.
Laughing is good for you, says the author, James M. Kauffman, so see the humor and laugh before you cry. Public education doesn't have to be tragicomic. If we think better and act wisely, we can make education what it should be. The author tells us where to start.
“One of the most important books ever written about education, and one of the best written.”
Dr. Barbara Bateman, best selling special education author
“. . . we have a host of suggestions for fixing educational problems . . . ‘feel good’ solutions that help nobody but those offering them. Kauffman slices through the nonsense . . .
. . . this book is for people who are serious about understanding and improving American education.” Dr. Frederick J. Brigham, George Mason University
“. . . this is the book you must read if you really want to understand why schools are the way they are today . . . written in Kauffman’s standard witty, yet brilliant, style.“
