About this title


The Wrong Emphasis is a reminder and a warning for both parents and public school educators. In the world of high-octane curriculum, assessment, and accountability, educators too often neglect the realities associated with successful students and successful adults. The book examines the current status of public education in America, the associated political landscape, and the latest philosophies aimed at improving test scores. Further, it offers straightforward advice for parents and educators as they struggle to appropriately raise and teach today’s children.

About the Author:

Dr. John Elling Tufte is a professor of education. He has taught and coached at the high school level, worked as a secondary administrator, and now presents and consults with teachers, administrators, and parents about issues facing schools today.
