  • HOW TO SURVIVE IN YOUR NATIVE LAND. by Herndon, James.
    Herndon, James.
    HOW TO SURVIVE IN YOUR NATIVE LAND.

    Edition: 3rd printing.

    New York: Simon & Schuster, (1971.) dj. Hardcover - Herndon looks at the 'good' mostly white, upper-middle class public schools and discusses the fatal flaws in public education: the system deals with children in groups and in every group there are some winners and some losers. While the educational reform movements of the 60's and 70's have been forgotten by most, the educational level of US children continues to drop (to the point where they had to change the scale on the SATs) and a book like this still contains much that is valuable, even if the hope of reform seems long-dead. 191 pp. ISBN: 0-671-208640.

    Condition: Very good in very good dust jacket.
