“It is really not necessary for me to state that a problem exists in our education system, for that is accepted. However, it is required that some indication of the size of the problem be indicated. We could use the number of dropouts, or the decline of various test scores, or the percentage of high school graduates that need to take remedial courses to enter college, or the inability of high school graduates to do simple math or write, and on and on.” --Keith Snelson
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Keith Snelson’s new book gives solutions to the problems faced by the US public education system.
In 1983, the US Department of Education commissioned a group of educators to examine and evaluate the public education system. Based on the previous twenty years of comparisons with other civilized countries, the USA was, at best, mediocre. The result was “A Nation At Risk.” This report not only identified the problems, it recommended solutions. One conclusion was that “[h]alf of the newly employed mathematics, science, and English teachers are not qualified to teach these subjects.” Twenty-five years later, the US Department of Education reexamined the education system to find that nothing had changed.
Based on the recommendations found within “A Nation At Risk,” along with a few of Keith Snelson’s own, “Public Education Can Be Saved” offers a road map for improving the US public education system. Knowing what to do is, however, not the problem. The problem is getting the suggestions implemented. People need to be aware that teachers with education degrees are not truly prepared to teach many of subjects they are teaching. America is using the look-say method of reading, which is not working. “Public Education Can Be Saved” provides solutions to all the issues plaguing America’s public education system.
