Students Are Only As Dumb As Their Teachers

Students Are Only As Dumb As Their Teachers: An Educator’s Call for Curing the Condition of Dumbness in Education has finally been published!

I critique current educational practices promoted and used  in school systems, schools of education programs, and government agencies .  I advance the concept of “lockdown”  by examining the absurdity of the teacher certification process, how teachers are often told how to teach math and how this may contribute to why our students’ math performance has declined over the years, and how most teachers do not get paid more than $5000 extra over their professional lifetime.  Moreover, I challenge the very notion of “school” and question what it means to be qualified to teach anybody. 

However, I not only analyze and respond to how our education system works;  I also provide information parents can use to help their children be successful no matter what educational setting they choose.  The last chapter even focuses on how single and dual income families can begin the process of homeschooling their children.
