A Fragile Enterprise recounts true stories the front lines of the struggle between the entitled few and the marginalized many in America’s public schools. In this book, you'll learn about the national narrative of education from the viewpoint of students and their families. You'll discover:

  • That despite the massive expenditure of public funds, large-scale national education improvement efforts have largely failed
  • That failing schools seldom have the resources and skills to implement the programs that are thrust upon them.
  • That the charter school solution leaves behind the students who need help the most.
  • How seldom families are involved in meaningful ways in the education of their children.
  • What the best teachers do and why they do it that way.
