"In this book, Jay P. Greene examines eighteen widely held beliefs about American education and finds that they just aren't true. In addition to myths about class size and teacher pay, he debunks common views about special education, certification, graduation, draining, segregation, and a host of other hotly debated issues." "Greene's reasoned and accessible approach refutes each myth with relevant and reliable facts and figures, including a broad review of the research. He believes our
schools can be fixed and concludes the book with important recommendations that, once implemented, will help our schools achieve measurable and affordable success. This landmark book provides a vital frame of reference for education reformers - and a wake-up call for undemanding taxpayers."--BOOK JACKET.
