Produktbeschreibungen

Kurzbeschreibung

An indictment of the American educational system criticizes the fact that the system has discarded the traditional goals of transmitting knowledge and fostering cognitive skills in favor of building self-esteem and promoting social harmony.

Synopsis

Thomas Sowell argues that the educational establishment of the United States - a vast tax-supported empire existing quasi-independently within American society - is morally and intellectually bankrupt. He suggests in a top-to-bottom tour of the mismanaged insitutions, cynical leadership and tendentious programmes of American education, that "deceptions and dogmas" have concealed or sought to justify the steep and dangerous decline in educational standards and practices across the board.

Thomas Sowell deftly points out the real problem - not that you may disagree with the morals and values being taught in American public schools, but that these have any business being taught at all when the time could more usefully be spent on education. He dispells other myths such as learning should be "fun" and "relevant" and the notion that elementary school age children have the ability to realistically analyze complex and controversial political issues ("Dear Mr. President, please don't make anymore nuclear bombs...").
This book has provided the impetus for me to purposely frustrate, bore and challenge my children because as Mr. Sowell points out what we knew all along, real self esteem comes from accomplishing something which was not easy.
Even if you plan on sending your children to private school, I recommend this book. The teachers are all coming from the same colleges and universities.

I read this book for the first time in 1993. Being a college professor for many years now, I knew there was something wrong with the American Educational System. Sowell stated it plainly. I am now a father of two and am facing the decision of how to educate my children (home, private school, public school, or charter school -- if it ever happens --). As Sowell states the American educational system is bankrupt. The definition of quality education is nebulous at best. Powerful teacher unions and other interest groups mess with our children's minds and produce intellectually lazy graduates: people who know quite a bit about self-granted rights and everyone else's obligations but little about personal obligations, responsibility, and logical and productive thinking. Anyone with school-age children should read this book before deciding which school is best for his/her children.

This is one of the best-written and most thoroughly documented books on the state of public education in America, from kindergarten to graduate school. I would recommend this book to people on either side of the education debates today, because it is a landmark work, thoroughly engaging, and will probably be in the library of many of the critics of the status quo in public education. For that reason alone, it would be good reading for SUPPORTERS of the status quo, so that they might be better prepared to engage their philosophical opponents on level ground. Dr. Sowell's conclusions may not be entirely optimistic, but his evidence is voluminous, thoroughly footnoted, and eminently readable

Thomas Sowell discusses American Education from pre-K's to graduate schools; the students, faculties, and administrations; and the financing, politics, and self-serving policies thereof. In 51 pages of notes, he supplies 1050 individual citations supporting his views and conclusions. His 11-page Index reveals some major themes by the number of pages on which each is discussed -- Brainwashing and Psychological Conditioning (50 pp.), Harvard (52 pp.), and Political Correctness (55 pp.).
Dr. Sowell grew up in Harlem during the 1930's and 1940's. He graduated from Harvard College (A.B. magna cum laude 1958), Columbia University (A.M. 1959), and University of Chicago (Ph.D. 1968) - all degrees being in Economics. With the quality of his education and particularly with his race, given the politics of the past half century, one might expect him to end up as a prominent bauble on some elitist university's faculty tree. Such was not the case. He displayed much too much independence of mind to be safely tucked into anybody's pocket. We learn on page 141 that as early as 1970, "a black professor named Thomas Sowell" warned against programs become too great to disguise, or to hide under euphemisms and apologetics, the conclusion that will be drawn in many quarters will not be that these were half-baked schemes, but that black people just don't have it." Dr. Sowell moved through organizations (U.S. Dept. of Labor, AT&T, The Urban Institute) and universities (Howard, Cornell, Brandeis, UCLA, Amherst). Since 1980, he has been a Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, California.
The reason for looking at Dr. Sowell and his background so carefully is that he makes many bold statements in his book, Inside American Education.

Years ago, when I first read this book, it seemed overstated and strident. Now that my own children have been in school for some years, this book seems understated and overly charitable.
Read this book. If it reads like a polemic, put the book down and spend some time volunteering at your local public school. Get to know and understand the children having problems. Read up on their problems and on the known methods for addressing these problems. Suggest to the school administration that their problems be addressed using proven methods. Offer to pay any costs out of your own pocket, if cost is an issue. Note their reaction, in particular, note whether or not your suggestion is implemented in a way that actually helps the child.
Then re-read the book. Odds are that it will no longer read like a polemic.
