Teaching teachers 

In one of the undergraduate courses I teach at a local community college, I noted that the author of the early childhood education text had stated one education innovator's position accurately. The author then went on to misrepresent the innovator (Froebel) and his work 5 times in the same chapter. The author characterized the position as bad, traditionalist, progressive, or superflous as fit her argument.

I look forward to reading this book on school reform. I hope that the history of school reform is represented accurately.

Thank to Joanne Jacobs for the reference.
