Doing School: How We Are Creating a Generation of Stressed Out, Materialistic, and Miseducated Students

Veteran teacher Pope follows five students through a school year and discovers that these young people believe getting ahead requires manipulating the system, scheming, lying, and cheating.
PortraitDenise Clark Pope is a lecturer at the Stanford University School of Education.
Pressestimmen"A troubling portrait of the deeply embedded and corrosive attitudes and expectations that students encounter even in America's most favoured elite secondary schools." Theodore R. Sizer, Brown University "The book raises disturbing questions about the kind of 'high standards' we are pushing for in our schools. It should inform any discussion of what it means to be an educated person in the 21st century." Edward B. Fiske, former Education Editor of the New York Times
