In America, more money is spent from all sources on K-12 education than on the U.S. Department of Defense. Why then are so many children suffering what amounts to educational malpractice? Why are they crippled for life with a substandard educationMoreIn America, more money is spent from all sources on K-12 education than on the U.S. Department of Defense. Why then are so many children suffering what amounts to educational malpractice? Why are they crippled for life with a substandard education and a life-altering vision of themselves as incapable? Betrayed is a passionate, well-researched and frank accounting of how a failing public-education system continues to be forced on teachers and students, despite its nearly complete lack of supporting research or successful student outcomes. Betrayed roots out the self-styled stakeholders whose personal, professional and financial interests are served by this failing system. It sympathizes with teachers_many of whom arent allowed to do their jobs, yet are constantly threatened with removal for ineffectiveness or insubordination. Betrayed is an expose, but its also a beacon of commonsense and hope. Through the Square of Effective Learning, Betrayed offers practical methods for teachers, parents, advocates and legislators to stand up against this broken system, to effect positive change, and to ensure a good-quality education for all of our children.
