The Death of Education The sad and shocking truth about the failure of our public schools to teach. One teacherfs experience. by Eric B. Olsen When I went into teaching over a decade ago my personal commitment was to do everything within my power to make sure my students had the most rigorous and beneficial educational experience possible. Unfortunately, I succeeded. In creating a new paradigm in the classroom, one that values analytical thought and an emphasis on true learning rather than rote memorization, I came in direct conflict with a public education system that doesnft want teachers to teach and doesnft want students to learn. But itfs not politicians and policy that are to blame. The real reason for the lack of teaching in todayfs classrooms is as close as your neighborhood school: Parents, who know the system isnft working but are willing to look the other way as long as their students are getting good grades. Administrators, failed teachers themselves, who are prevented by teacherfs unions from any meaningful assessment of teachers they purport to oversee. Teachers, conforming like sheep to decades of failed methodology without even realizing it is their own ineptitude that has caused the very lack of student intelligence and engagement they bemoan. The failure of education in our country is no secret, but a successful campaign of misdirection waged by educators themselves continues to keep us from understanding why. The Death of Education finally exposes the truth, shining a light inside public school classrooms that have been dark for far too long."
