13.00

U.S. Secondary School Education from the 1960s into the 21st Century

Written for:

  • Recently hired teachers and those considering a teaching career;
  • Experienced teachers who are becoming increasingly alarmed by the mounting difficulties in many U.S. classrooms;
  • Those in positions of authority whose decisions will ultimately affect student achievement and the retention rates of effective teachers;
  • Parents and involved citizens who plan to articulate their concerns over their children's schools and local school districts.

James Kimou taught science in standard and alternative high schools, and in junior middle/high schools. He also served as a science department chairman, and as a mentor to recently hired middle-school teachers. Kimou has also conducted the production, editing, promotion, and sales of educational audio-visual materials. These endeavors afforded him the opportunity to interact with teachers and administrators from many parts of the United States, thus broadening his perception of education throughout the nation. Now retired, he decided to write Crippling the Classroom in the hope that others might benefit from the varied experiences of someone who served as an educatio throuh more than four decades. Essentially, the book is centered on Kimou's recollections, reflections, and recommendations for improving many of the problems that plague too many schools in the United States.
