Synopsis: Journalist Joe Williams shows how parents can use consumer power to put children first, shining light on the special interests controlling our schools, where politics and pork infuse everything and our children's education is compromised. He argues that increased accountability and choice are necessary, and shows how the people can take back the education system, enhancing responsibility inherent in democracy. The solution is a new brand of hardball politics that demands competence from school leaders and shifts the power away from bureaucrats and union leaders to the people who have a the greatest reason to put kids first: concerned parents. With practical steps and uplifting examples of success, Cheating Our Kids: How Politics and Greed Ruin Education is a manifesto to action.

About the Author:

Joe Williams writes about education and the New York City schools for The New York Daily News. Previously, he covered education for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel where he won numerous local and national awards for his coverage of that city's private school voucher program. His children attend public schools in Manhattan, where he lives.
