Argues that studies protray schools as bureaucratic, violent, and ineffective, and increased population levels have distorted the statistics

Book News
Berliner (psychology and education, Arizona State U.-Tempe) and Biddle (journal editor, Social Psychology of Education ) debunk familiar statistics about public schools and prove that SAT scores are rising for many groups, investments in education pay off in greater student achievements and earnings, and that many private schools are not better than public schools. They examine misguided proposals for correcting fictitious problems, and offer solutions to the real problems American schools face. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
