Save Our Schools: 66 Things You Can Do To Improve Your School without Spending an Extra Penny.
Miller, Mary Susan
Following an introduction purporting that the real reason for the failure of schools in the United States lies not in the lack of funding but in the inaction of the whole education community, this book suggests solutions including ways to enable teachers to do a better job, enrich a watered-down curriculum, challenge quick learners and reinforce slower students, put parents on the teaching team, and get the community involved. The book contains five parts: (1) "What Parents Can Do"; (2) "How You Can Help Students Become Part of the Solution"; (3) "How You Can Strengthen Teaching"; (4) "How You Can Strengthen Administration"; and (5) "How You Can Involve Your Community." Contains a state-by-state list of 72 foundations that contribute financial support annually to education, and a list of 23 national education organizations that offer information and advice. (AMC)
