"Betrayed is a rare book on this country's educational problems. It offers the perspective of a parent committed to the perservation of public education. Parents are the most important group of stakeholders in our public schools. Yet, it is hard to find an education school in the country that requires prospective school administrators to read what a parent sees as the problems in our public schools, especially in the math classroom. Betrayed belongs on the syllabus of every course (and professional development workshop) on school and community relations and that school administrators are required to take for certification or a salary increase."---Sandra Stotsky, University of Arkansas "Laurie Rogers' Betrayed is a must-read for parents, teachers, and policy makers with an interest in mathematics education and the controversies surrounding how children are taught this critical topic. Rogers identifies the core of this controversy and provides incisive critiques of many popular approaches to mathematics education."---David C. Geary, University of Missouri "Betrayed is a passionate, nuanced, and informative investigation of America's public schools by a seasoned parent activist. Based on her experiences with Washington State's schools and education bureaucracies, Laurie Rogers has produced a how-to guidebook with valuable insights and advice for parents, teachers, and others who seek to improve education."---David Klein, California State University, Northridge Betrayed is a well-researched and frank accounting of how a failing public education system continues to be forced on teachers and students, despite its nearly complete lack of supporting research or successful student outcomes. Laurie Rogers roots out the self-styled "stakeholders" whose personal, professional, and financial interests are served by this failing system. She sympathizes with teaches---many of whom aren't allowed to do their jobs, yet are constantly threatened with removal for ineffectiveness or insubordination.

When a Congregation Is Betrayed

When a Congregation Is Betrayed

However, when our religious institutions fail, betray, or abandon us, we are often left wondering what life is really ... to offer the world in order to make it a better place now and after they have moved on to an other-worldly life?

Other books have been written about clergy misconduct and its effects on congregations. Some are by victims. Others are written by professionals for a professional audience. Until now, however, there hasn't been a book for the congregational leaders who must deal with the fallout of clergy misconduct. Both the afterpastors--the interim or settled pastors who follow misconducting pastors--and lay leaders need guidance about how to assess and effectively respond to the misconduct, how to care for the victim/survivor, and how to carry out the mission and ministry to which the congregation has been called.

In two previous highly regarded books on the U.S. Senate, Ira Shapiro chronicled the institution from its apogee in the 1970s through its decline in the decades since. Now, Shapiro turns his gaze to how the Senate responded to the challenges posed by the Trump administration and its prospects under President Biden. The Founding Fathers gave the US Senate many functions, but it had one fundamental responsibility—its raison d’etre: to provide the check against a dangerous president who threatened our democracy. Two hundred and thirty years later, when Donald Trump, a potential authoritarian, finally reached the White House, the Senate should have served as both America’s first and last lines of defense. Instead, we had the nightmare scenario: today’s Senate, reduced through a long period of decline to a hyper-partisan, gridlocked shadow of its former self, was unable to meet its fundamental responsibility. Shapiro documents the pivotal challenges facing the Senate during the Trump administration, arguing that the body’s failure to provide leadership represents the most catastrophic failure of government in American history. The last section covers the Senate’s performance during President Biden’s first year in office and looks forward to the 2022 Senate elections and beyond.

Making of Them

Making of Them

Let us revisit the idea of the 'establishment mole', for we are now better placed to speculate on his hidden motives. Let us return to the story of Magnus Pym/Le Carré. After boarding school, Pym is recruited by MI5 and becomes a spy.

In the 21st century British society is still shaped by a private education system devised to gentrify the Victorian middle classes and produce gentlemen to run the Empire. Yet it is not on the political agenda; it is rarely the subject of public debate, and we remain blind to its psychological implications. Can we afford to go on ignoring this issue? Will we continue to sacrifice the welfare of our children to satisfy our antiquated social aspirations?Why do the British still send their children away to boarding school? What are the attitudes underpinning this practice which mystifies foreigners? What does it mean for a child to be sent away from home and immediately have to survive in an unfamiliar custom-ridden world, without love, family life or privacy? Will it be 'the making of them', or will it be a trauma from which he or she may never recover?In this thought-provoking book, now a classic, psychotherapist, psychohistorian and former boarder Nick Duffell reveals the bewildering dilemmas confronting the boarding school child and discovers a dark secret at the heart of the British psyche. Drawing on three decades of working with Boarding School Survivors, he describes the process towards living beyond 'strategic survival', and offers pointers towards a philosophy of education that honours the needs and the intelligence of the natural child.

Martin Scorsese s America

Martin Scorsese s America

“If your husband hadn't betrayed us both, who knows? We might have been different people. ... Or is it? Faith doesn't require proof. Confidence does. You can be confident that the American legal system is fair, just, and virtuous.

For over four decades, Martin Scorsese has been the chronicler of an obsessive society, where material possessions and physical comfort are valued, where the pursuit of individual improvement is rewarded and where male prerogative is respected and preserved. Scorsese has often described his films as sociology and he has a point: his storytelling condenses complex information into comprehensible narratives about society. In this sense, he has been a guide through a dark world of nineteenth century crypto-fascism to a fetishistic twentieth century in which goods, fame, money and power are held to have magical power. Author of Tyson: Nurture of the Beast and Beckham, Ellis Cashmore turns his attention to arguably the most influential living film- maker to explore how Scorsese envisions America. Greed, manhood, the city and romantic love feature on Scorsese’s landscape of secular materialism. They are among the themes Cashmore argues have driven and inform Scorsese’s work. This is America, as seen through the eyes of Martin Scorsese and it is a deeply unpleasant place. Cashmore’s book discloses how, collectively, Scorsese’s films present an image of America. It’s an image assembled from the perspectives of obsessive people, whether burned-out paramedics, compulsive entrepreneurs, tortured lovers, or celebrity-fixated comedians. It’s collected from pool halls, taxicabs, boxing rings and jazz clubs. It’s an image that’s specific, yet ubiquitous. It is Martin Scorsese’s America.
