The Truth about American Education and its Long-term Inadequacies
Dale Headley reveals the foibles of American education in the 21st century.
“Standardized testing, outdated, rigid methods hold no place in the development of the educational system in this century. With the voice that I provided, I dream more will acknowledge this dysfunction and progress to the more effective, human order of teaching,”
The structure of American education has long followed a rigid path, and perhaps it is no longer efficacious. Award-winning educator in subjects such as science, language arts, history, and mathematics, Dale Headley bares the fault lines in the inelastic educational system in the US in his new book, Boondoggle.
The book reveals the stunted educational system and its dated, rigorous, and mechanistic methods of imparting said education. He emphasizes the need for remodeling this age-old paradigm and to turn the focus on an adaptive Socratic system that does not smother the learning child’s developing capacities.
“Standardized testing, outdated, rigid methods hold no place in the development of the educational system in this century. With the voice that I provided, I dream more will acknowledge this dysfunction and progress to the more effective, human order of teaching,” Headley says.
Written with great truths and backed by research and experience, one can take a wealth of newfound realizations on the shortcomings of America’s educational system.
