<The Manufactured Crisis by David C.
Berliner and Bruce J. Biddle, 1995, Addison Wesley. > I have heard of this
book and, as a matter of fact, have heard Gerald Bracey speak on the same
topic. He publishes yearly Bracey reports (I think in Educational
Leadership) in which he shows the same read on the data. I have intuitively
thought that it was true that today's students know as much, if not more,
than my peers and I knew in the 50s and 60s. They are learning topics in
grade school I never heard of until college. It's a fascinating look at
statistics. More students are learning more now!!! A lot of his discussion
concerns mathematics because of the international research. A good read and
a very thought-provoking speaker.
