Cleaning Up the Mess from Sacred Cows

Our new book, Cleaning Up the Mess from Sacred Cows: A Strategy to Take Back Our Public Schools, is now available on  It is authored by Charlie Irish (a former public school superintendent) and me and addresses the harsh reality that our public schools are in trouble.  Not only have our teachers and students been overwhelmed by three decades of sweeping education reforms, but the long-standing relationship between the public and its public schools is hanging by a thread.  Our book exposes the root of the problem as misguided conventional wisdom which, until now, has been immune from criticism.  In Ohio, a grassroots movement challenging this sacred-cow thinking is serving as an important source of learning for the rest of the country.
