The Table of Contents to My Book
On April 27, 2014, I announced publication of my book, A Chronicle of Echoes: Who’s Who in the Implosion of American Public Education.
I realize that the Amazon.com listing of my book currently lacks the interactive component allowing shoppers the opportunity to “look inside” the book.
So, I have decided to offer some “peeks.”
The excerpts are enlightening– all “reformer” polish removed.
Here, I wish to provide more of the book’s “big picture”: A viewing of the table of contents:
