About The Book (Excerpts and Info):
The Boston Latin School was first opened in 1635 — unfortunately, teaching methods haven’t changed much since then. With the obvious failings of our public schools and the monumental technological changes in our society, the author asks, isn’t it time to “fix” our schools and bring them up to date?
Dr. M.R. Ussery is a longtime educator who believes that traditional school environments are not as effective as they should be and do not provide equal opportunities for all students. Without individualized instruction, tailored to meet each child’s need, many students are falling through the cracks.
“My model school would include regular diagnostic testing to establish each student’s cognizant strengths. Individual instructional modules with flexible design would allow each student to work on assignments designed to best suit their abilities,” the author states.
In this revolutionary new book, Dr. Ussery outlines his plan for improving our schools by developing a modernized public educational system from the ground up. Our Schools Are Archaic gives an insider’s perspective of the problems of the current learning environment at public schools (and some private schools, as well), and shows how everyone can help bring our schools into the 21st century.
69 pages in length, Public Schools Are Archaic is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the education and experimental methods category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Public Schools Are Archaic meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $11.95.
Additionally, Public Schools Are Archaic can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks.
Format: 6 x 9 paperback cream
