Synopsis

Is the American School System failing by mistake or by design? Why does a nation known globally as a democracy invest billion of its citizens’ dollars in a national school system that operates on the basis of socioeconomic class? Why has America fallen in below top per cent in the roster of nations in education, when it once was rated #1? Can a child-centric school be designed that actively addresses the needs of all American children regardless of their socioeconomic level? The answers to these important questions are found in the thorny history of the American school system chronicled in How Deconstructing The American School System Will Reconstruct The American Dream by Rosanna Pittella, Ph.D. Unlike any other books on positive change in education, this book drives the reader down the historical evolution of the American school system, past the racist issues and political faux pas, pointing out the billboards blaring lessons learned. Then the reader is delivered to a unique and challenging but practical proposal. This book goes one big step beyond the rest by bringing the reader to a solution in which he or she can actually participate. Concerned educators, parents, business leaders, and students can only profit by learning from the past of American education and using it as a powerful tool in the most revolutionary school redesign in the history of the country.
