Self-Publishing Book Spotlight: Public Schools Are Archaic

Longtime educator Dr. M. R. Ussery recently announced the release of his book Public Schools Are Archaic, published by Outskirts Press.  Dr. Ussery gives an insider’s view of the reasons for the obvious failings of America’s public schools, despite the monumental technological changes in the society, and offers a specific plan for bringing our schools into the 21st century.
Dr. Ussery believes that traditional school environments are not as effective as they should be, nor do they provide equal opportunities for all students.  Without individualized instruction, tailored to meet each child’s needs, many students are falling through the antiquated cracks of our educational system.

In today’s high school classes the author notes that some students are lacking the preparation necessary from their previous education to be successful at their new level.  Other students just do not want to be there.  Worse yet, few students can voice any purpose for studying the course they are on.  Unfortunately, sometimes the teachers can’t, either.

The model school the author proposes in Public Schools Are Archaic would include regular diagnostic testing to establish each student’s cognizant strengths as well as individualized instructional modules with flexible design which would allow individual students to work on those assignments best suited to their current abilities.

Dr. Ussery recognizes that solutions must also be put into effect on the federal as well as the local level.  He recommends that federal public servants no longer use their positions to override states’ rights in determining the best paths for education, but support the one local reform that is most needed: pilot schools.
