The Teacher Wars free pdf A" New York Times" Bestseller In her groundbreaking history of175 years of American education, Dana Goldstein finds answers in the past to the controversies that plague ourpublic schools today. In "The Teacher Wars," a rich, lively, and unprecedented history of public school teaching, Dana Goldstein reveals that teachers have been embattled for nearly two centuries. She uncovers the surprising roots of hot button issues, from teacher tenure to charter schools, and finds that recent popular ideas to improve schools instituting merit pay, evaluating teachers by student test scores, ranking and firing veteran teachers, and recruiting elite graduates to teach are all approaches that have been tried in the past without producing widespread change. "The Teacher Wars" upends the conversation about American education by bringing the lessons of history to bear on the dilemmas we confront today. By asking How did we get here? Dana Goldstein brilliantly illuminates the path forward."
