Academically Adrift: Limited Learning on College CampusesAcademically Adrift: Limited Learning on College Campuses by Richard Arum

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a must read for any teacher — or anyone who wants to comment on the state of education. Fixing our schools has absolutely nothing to do with privatizing them. (In fact, private schools oftentimes remove standards because they need customers who don’t like doing the heavy lifting). Instead, we need to bring back rigor and standards to our classroom, demanding students put in the time and the work so they may think better!

What that means is I will collect information about the authors I interview, book happenings around the Web, and other literary events that I find interesting. Without you, I'm just a crazy guy sitting in his office furiously screaming on the page for no reason.
