Summary:
"This is not just a smart book. It is also a touchingly personal narrative. Don't be fooled by the fact that this work is vital and informative. It is far more than that. It's genius, and what makes it memorable is Horace (Rog) Lucido's gift to speak to us, not just from the head but from the heart as well."--Elaine Garan, professor of literacy and early education, California State University, Fresno.

    schema:description ""High-stakes testing appeals to politicians and bean counters. Real educators, like Lucido, use varying and creative methods to reach different kinds of children, and they judge their success by multiple measures. Which kind of students does America need--cookie-cutter clones or critical thinkers? Educational Genocide describes the crisis in our public schools and offers remedies for parents, teachers, and administrators."--Angelica Carpenter, curator, Arne Nixon Center for the Study of Children's Literature, California State University, Fresno."@en ;

    schema:description ""Education Genocide is much more than a wake-up call.... Lucido's exhaustive research and firsthand experience should ignite outrage and a 1960s-style revolt against high-stakes test abuse overtaking the nation's public schools under the punitive politics of No Child Left Behind. Mind-numbing testing can no longer be ignored as a major source of the escalating dropout of students and teachers."--Jo Ann Rupert Behm, former president, Learning Disabilities Association of California --Book Jacket."@en ;

    schema:description ""As a longtime educator who has witnessed firsthand the harmful effects of test-score hysteria, I appreciate the very readable, in-depth research Lucido has provided in Educational Genocide. As our government begins the ̀Race to the Top,' this book is a must-read for anyone who has children, is a teacher, or is involved in education in any way. I wish every legislator would read this book before casting another vote on any test score-related education bill!"--Helen Pitton, literacy consultant; founding member of Educators and Parents Against Test Abuse."@en ;
