George Lucas Educational Foundation Celebrating our 25th Anniversary!

Bruce Deitrick Price

Author, artist, poet, education activist. My fifth book is "THE EDUCATION ENIGMA--What Happened To American Education." Improve-Education.org, founded in 2005, now presents over 125,000 words of original content. Reading is a primary focus.

Here's something I just put out in a press release titled: "Let's Save Public Education: A Five-Point Plan." (Please Google it.)....

"Here's what I see again and again. Everyone has a theory!!! Most of them are not helpful. Either they are small and deal with money and administrative details. Or they are cosmic and involve starting over with the planet on a new axis. Sorry, in the real world, we've got to work with the good we have, and systematically cut away at the bad.

"A lot of my work on Improve-Education.org is devoted to analyzing why various dumb ideas don't work. For just one example: sight-words. Keep a kid from reading and it's over. Build a billion-dollar school, it's still over! So I put a lot of emphasis on deconstructing all the horrible nonsense that an ideologically motivated Education Establishment has concocted to make sure that children remained more or less at the same level.'
