About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

In Abuses of Power Dr. Rose is relentless in examining how power is abused by everyone involved in education. Rose believes that the questions we ask determine the answers we get. When you ask the wrong questions you get the wrong solutions.

When schools asked, "Why are minority parents not supportive of their children?" The answer was, "They don't care."

Dr. Rose asked, "What do we do that keeps minority parents away?"

Answer. 'We don't listen to or respect them, but dictate what we want from them."

Schools. "Why don't kids pay attention."

Answer, "They are stupid, don't care, or have family or culture problems"

Rose. "Why should kids pay attention?"

Answer, "Because I show I care about them, I listen to and negotiate solutions with them. I find their interests and explore them with them."

Schools. "Why don't teachers do a better job?"

Answer. "They're only interested in higher pay and benefits."

Dr. Rose. "How can we get teachers to be more successful?'"

Answer. "Give teachers more academic freedom, autonomy, and respect for each to discover the best ways to teach."

Free public education is considered one of our most important freedoms. Yet, most feel our system is not working.

About the Author

Dr. Rose, who has taught all grades in four large districts, graphically, powerfully describes how abuses of power contribute to these real failures. He explains how he changed his beliefs and managed paradigm shifts in thinking and acting that made teaching and learning for most of his students successful. Not just insights in the past and present problems in schools, but an explanation of many proven things that can immediately improve them.
