The Blackboard and the Bottom Line by Larry Cuban
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this provocative new book, Larry Cuban, one of the most distinguished scholars in education, takes aim at the alluring cliche that schools should be more businesslike, and shows that in its long history in business-minded America, no one has shown that a business model can be successfully applied to education. Not only are schools by their nature not businesslike, Cuban argues, but the attempt to run them along business lines leads to dangerous over-standardization - of tests, and of goals for our children. Why should we think that there is such a thing as one best school?
