So why do we continue to administer this modern cod liver oil-or even demand a larger dose? Kohn's incisive analysis reveals how a set of misconceptions about learning and a misguided focus on competitiveness has left our kids with less free time, and our families with more conflict. Pointing to stories of parents who have fought back-and schools that have proved educational excellence is possible without homework-Kohn demonstrates how we can rethink what happens during and after school in order to rescue our families and our children's love of learning.

"A good book to have on hand when defending the idea of homework-free elementary schooling."--"San Antonio Express-News" "[The Schools Our Children Deserve is]...a remarkable book that should become a classic in the field." -- Jonathan Kozol "Alfie Kohn holds a crucial position in the American dialog about parenting." -- Michael Gurian "Perhaps the country's most outspoken critic of education's fixation on grades [and] test scores." "The most energetic and charismatic figure standing in the way of [making] standardized curriculums and tests a fact of life in every U.S. school."
