Most of us are totally unaware of what actually goes on in the teaching environment in the classroom. We may attend parents? evenings and discuss with the teacher the progress of our children in the classroom. We help with (and sometimes actually do) our children?s homework. Parents and grandparents will talk with their children and grandchildren about what they are taught, but the children are unable to explain why they are taught what they are taught or what are the philosophical ideologies behind the teaching. In this carefully researched book, Paul Taylor powerfully and devastatingly brings to light the underlying thinking that is the basis for so much of what is taught in our modern schools.
