50 Myths & Lies That Threaten America's Public Schools
2014 Annual Leadership Conference Speaker Book!!! This book is guaranteed to spark lively debates and critical thinking in any classroom! Two of the most respected voices in education identify 50 myths and lies that threaten America's public schools. Berliner and Glass argue that many citizens' conception of K-12 public education in the United States is more myth than reality. Warped opinions about our nation's public schools include: they are inferior to private schools; they are among the worst in the world in math and science; teachers should be fired if their students don't score at the national average, and on and on.

Class Warfare: Inside the Fight to Fix America's Schools
NEW!! Writer Steven Brill’s 2008 New Yorker article on New York City’s so-called “rubber rooms,” where incompetent teachers spent their time, earning a salary while waiting for their cases to be decided, sparked a firestorm of debate over the role of teacher unions in education. The book that grew from that article, Class Warfare, has set off yet another round in the education reform rhetoric battle, with unions being portrayed as barriers to change.
