Subject: Open Access (Free to Read) to Glass's "The Fate of Public Education
in America"


Recognized since its publication 18 months ago as one of the
most original and influential books on education in America
of the past decade, Gene Glass's  "Fertilizers, Pills & 
Magnetic Strips: The Fate of Public Education in America" 
is being offered by IAP Inc. in open access as a service to 
educators everywhere. 

Go online to http://infoagepub.com/glass-chapter-10 and read

education is headed in the 21st Century.

        Fertilizers, Pills & Magnetic Strips: 
       The Fate of Public Education in America 

                  Gene V Glass


Glass shows how the central education policy 
debates at the start of the 21st century (vouchers, 
charter schools, tax credits, high-stakes testing, 
bilingual education) are actually about two underlying 
issues: how can the costs of public education be cut, 
and how can the education of the White middle-class 
be "quasi-privatized" at public expense? Working from 
the demographic realities of the past thirty years, he 
projects a challenging and disturbing future for public 
education in America.  


"This is the first credible book of the 21st century to 
anticipate the future of public education."    
            ~ David C. Berliner, Former President of the  
              American Educational Research Association;  
              Author of The Manufactured Crisis 


"He challenges the received view of the ordinary education 
debates, revealing what lies behind the stale and superficial 
             ~Kevin Welner, Director, Education and the 
              Public Interest Center


"...a wake up call to America about the disastrous 
consequences of current policies that shortchange the 
education of the coming majority "Latinos and other 
'minority' students" on whom the very future of the 
nation rests."      
             ~ Patricia Gándara, University of California, 
                Los Angeles; Co-Director, The Civil Rights 
                Project/Proyecto Derechos Civiles 


"The book makes such impressive sense that one has 
to believe that its clarity, command of the facts, eye 
for absurdity, and concern for justice will garner 
greater support for public education as a common and  noble cause."      
              ~ John Willinsky, Stanford University; 
                 Author of The Access Principle: The Case for
                 Open Access to Research and Scholarship
