Most American students are bored and uninspired; our teachers are overwhelmed and losing hope; our schools have fallen behind the rest of the world in the subjects of science, math, and reading. And Lee Ognibene has the cure.

An award-winning educator for more than thirty years, Ognibene explains how and why American schools are failing, challenges traditional teaching methods, and delivers a cooperative learning model that reflects today's media- and tech-savvy students and makes teaching and learning active, fun, and rewarding.

Brimming with personal anecdotes, seasoned advice, and plenty of practical tools and exercises, this refreshingly innovative teacher's guide offers new ways to handle praise, keep up with technology, facilitate school-industry partnerships, measure genuine learning, challenge each and every student, make curriculum relevant and engaging, appreciate and accommodate gender differences, expect (and inspire) excellence, and much more. Ognibene even proposes groundbreaking ideas such as school laptops for every child and distance learning where high school students do not have to attend classes on campus every day!

A must-read for every teacher and administrator-and parents, too-The Cure for the Common School paves the path for enthusiastic teachers to cultivate the genius in every student and create model schools that will once again make the American educational system the envy of the world.
