The failure of the American education system...books/video suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Thanks! I actually was assigned to read "Boys Adrift..." this week for a discussion on boys/young men and how video games affect them.


That's what spurred my interest in boys in the school system. I'm a mother to five and have witnessed first hand how the schools have failed two of my boys so far...


I really enjoyed that book and its totally changed the way I've been thinking and addressing my son's possible ADHD and medication...

None Dare Call it Education


2 Million Minutes: A Documentary Calculating the Educational Divide

(I haven't watched this second one, but rather I see it in our Amazon cart. Assumedly someone here has recommended it. The reviews make it look quite interesting. Unfortunately it currently costs $124!!)
