This book is a very good expose on the current educational system and its flaws. From corporations' unduly influence upon the food choices of our students' cafeteria to the uselessness of grades and exams, the author goes through each section of educational system and points out its failures. Your eyes will be opened. Although complaintive and whiny at times, the book points out the things that are wrong with our schools so as to compel readers to advocate to make them right. A must read for any teacher.
