Purposely limiting their analysis to problems that can be fixed from within the educational system, the authors attack (from an administrator's perspective) ten presumptions of American public education and offer some advice on how to fix them. National testing programs, teacher's unions, grouping and grading practices, large school sizes, obstructive school boards, and the single-salary pay schedules for teachers are among the problems they wish to see eradicated.
