Money : who has how much and why by Andrew Hacker( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To the question "Are the rich getting richer?" Hacker notes that in 1979, 13,505 individuals or families earned the equivalent of $1 million per year. Only fifteen years later, that number had jumped to an incredible 68,064. The last few decades have indeed witnessed the rise of the "$1 Million a Year" American. The rich are getting richer, and more people are joining their ranks, but the lower income echelon is not dwindling. One in five children currently live in households where the annual income is below $15,000. Hacker uses his mastery with statistics and authoritative analysis to show how a changing economy is affecting our lives and how, in turn, our decisions are changing the shape of the economy. And he looks ahead, confronting our greatest uncertainties about our futures and the futures of our children. Shattering all the taboos we have on the subjects of wealth, poverty, worth, and greed, Money is essential reading for anyone who wants to know more about their slice of the American pie
Higher education? : how colleges are wasting our money and failing our kids--and what we can do about it by Andrew Hacker( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Calling for a thorough overhaul of a self-indulgent system, the authors make an incisive case that the American way of higher education, now a $420 billion-per-year business, has lost sight of its primary mission: the education of young adults. Taking readers on a road trip from Princeton to Evergreen State to Florida Gulf Coast University, Hacker and Dreifus reveal those faculties and institutions that they believe are getting it right and proving that teaching and learning can be achieved--and at a much more reasonable price

The math myth : and other STEM delusions by Andrew Hacker( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Andrew Hacker's 2012 New York Times op-ed questioning our current mathematics requirements instantly became one of the the paper's most widely circulated articles. Why, he wondered, do we inflict algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and even calculus on all young Americans, regardless of their interests or aptitudes? The Math Myth expands Hacker's scrutiny of many widely held assumptions, such as the notion that mathematics broadens our minds, that mastery of azimuths and asymptotes will be needed for most jobs, that the entire Common Core syllabus should be required of every student. He worries that a frenzied emphasis on STEM is diverting attention from other pursuits and subverting the spirit of the country. Though Hacker honors mathematics as a calling (he has been a professor of mathematics) and extols its glories and its goals, he shows how mandating it for everyone prevents other talents from being developed and acts as an irrational barrier to graduation and careers. He proposes alternatives, including teaching facility with figures, quantitative reasoning, and utilizing statistics. The Math Myth is sure to spark a heated and needed national conversation not just about mathematics but about the kind of people and society we want to be."--Publisher's Web site
