BeschreibungTracing the development of educational ideas in the United States from William James to the present day, Mr. Zoch shows how they have given the schools an obsessive focus on teachers and their teaching methods while neglecting the disciplined effort and hard work that students must expend in order to achieve. "Thoughtful and important....A book that should be read by anyone who cares about realistic school reform." Diane Ravitch.
PortraitPaul A. Zoch studied classics at the University of Texas and Indiana University, and has taught high school in Texas for sixteen years. He has participated in-and been subject to-a myriad of school reform initiatives, but he knows firsthand why they fail. He has also written Ancient Rome: An Introductory History. He is married and has a daughter, and lives in Missouri City, Texas.
