Rescuing An Overscheduled, Overtested, Underestimated GenerationAudiobook CD - 2015
Vicki Abeles taps into the grassroots communities across the nation to find the solutions to our education, which publishes simultaneously with the release of her new documentary. Pulling from powerful anecdotes and convincing new research, Abeles presents inspirational, quantifiable success stories and shows how anyone, students, parents, and educators, can effect change. Teachers who cut students2 workload see scores rise; kids discover their own motivation once parents relieve the pressure to perform; schools that institute later start times have well-rested students who are able to learn more efficiently; and schools that emphasize depth over test prep find students more attentive, inventive, and ready to thrive.
