Ain't Nobody Be Learnin? Nothin?: The Fraud and the Fix for High-Poverty Schools

Availability: Ready to download

When college math professor Caleb Rossiter retired he remembered his wonderful high school math teachers, and decided to "give back" to high school students. He was shocked by the fraud he found as a teacher in high-poverty schools -- phony grades, phony diplomas, phony progress, all to meet "school reform" targets. He describes it all in detail in "Ain't Nobody Be Learnin When college math professor Caleb Rossiter retired he remembered his wonderful high school math teachers, and decided to "give back" to high school students. He was shocked by the fraud he found as a teacher in high-poverty schools -- phony grades, phony diplomas, phony progress, all to meet "school reform" targets. He describes it all in detail in "Ain't Nobody Be Learnin' Nothin.': The Fraud and the Fix for High-Poverty Schools." The Washington Post education columnist Jay Mathews wrote three articles on the book, which he called "the best account of public education in the nation's capital I have ever read." Students and teachers are given pseudonyms, but their stories are true -- the reverse of the diplomas that half of Rossiter's students received (the other half dropped out): those had real names on them, but were fundamentally false.
