If you have ever wondered why our public schools are such a mess, this book is for you.
“Saving K-12” is intended for the general public, most of all parents. They need to know what is being done to their children in the classroom.
Bruce Price explains why millions of kids never learn to read; why so many children don’t master basic math; why the American public is increasingly ignorant of Geography, History, and Science; and why throughout the typical school we find ever more dumb and dumber.
According to Price, this decline is unacceptable and a fascinating intellectual puzzle. Why do school officials seem to prefer inferior theories and methods? Price explains all the major clunkers.
This book is lively reading about serious topics. See reviews on Amazon.

Bruce Deitrick Price is an Honors graduate of Princeton, the author of six novels, and as well an artist, poet, and design consultant. Along the way, he became fascinated with the decline in our public schools.
Price thinks of K-12 as a crime scene with lots of walking wounded and unnecessary suffering. He enjoys playing Sherlock Holmes. Who committed the crimes? What are the weapons? And what are the motives?
Price has always been a generalist with a passion for both the sciences and the humanities. He is devoted to clarity. This is a good disposition for exploring the shadowy jungles of K-12.
In fact, Price first became interested in the field of education when a friend mentioned in passing, “Oh, you collect samples of bad English?? You’ll love education!” Price was actually shocked. It was like hearing that a nurse kills people. He feels that people in education have a special obligation to be clear and honest.
Price has more than 400 articles on the Internet and 75 longer articles on his ed site Improve-Education.org, founded in 2005. (Google Bruce Deitrick Price and any educational topic, you’ll probably find a relevant article.)
“There is nothing more important than your child’s education, and no one has a better grasp on what is happening in the schools of the current day than columnist/author Bruce Price.” Judi McLeod, Editor/Publisher of Canada Free Press
“Everything written by Bruce Deitrick Price about education is both lucid and compelling. He consistently sees through the jargon of the educrats and the longwindedness of John Dewey and other progressives, who are more interested in social engineering than in skills or independent thinking. He consistently makes a forceful case for phonics as being the best way to teach reading. This work is another example of his clarity and positive vision for American education.” Professor Jeffrey Ludwig, author, “The Catastrophic Decline of America’s Public High Schools.”
