About the Author
David L. Kirp, a professor at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley. His previous books include Shakespeare, Einstein, and The Bottom Line.
Kirkus"An important, well-researched wake-up call, and any part of it that educators and lawmakers take into account is worthwhile" Diane Ravitch, Author of The Death and Life of the Great American School System "David Kirp's book could change the policy debate about how to improve the lives of children. It's smart, sharp, and clear about what we need to do to lift the kids who need help the most." Robert B. Reich, Former U.S. Secretary of Labor and Chancellor's Professor Public Policy, University of California, Berkeley "In an era when answers to America's myriad social problems seem dismally remote, David Kirp comes to the rescue with important ideas for giving our kids better lives. Kirp thinks big, writes beautifully, and compels our attention. His agenda is practical and necessary. And if America's children had any political clout, they'd demand it." Edward Zigler, Sterling Professor of Psychology, Emeritus, Yale University "David Kirp is a leading scholar who in this book provides us with a knowledge-based, cradle-to-college agenda that merits the attention of every parent and policymaker in America."
