In this provocative book, "America's Superintendent," John Kuhn lays bare the scare tactics at the root of the modern school
reform movement. Kuhn conveys a deeply held passion for the mission and promise of public education through his own experience
as a school administrator in Texas. When his "Alamo Letter" first appeared in the Washington Post, it galvanised the educational
community in a call to action that was impossible to ignore. This powerful book requires us to question whether the current
education crisis will be judged by history as a legitimate national emergency or an agenda-driven panic, spurred on by a media
that is, for the most part, uninterested in anything but useless soundbites.
