Decline of Quality in US Education



“The book before you is, to my knowledge, the first to confront the question head-on. All those boys and girls…do parents—does anybody—have any idea what happens to them in college?” — From the forward of the book written by Tom Wolfe

“The decline of our once-proud colleges and universities—well documented in this book—is the bitter fruit of our ever-more ineffective K-12 education. This book makes it clear that our nation is still at risk.” — E. D. Hirsch, Jr., author of Cultural Literacy
and The Schools We Need

“Anyone who cares deeply about American higher education will read this book and feel enlightened and enraged, delighted and despondent, encouraged and in despair. A ‘must read’ for those interested in both good news and bad, from higher education’s influential insiders and jaded outsiders.” — Lee S. Shulman, President, The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching
