The conspiracy of ignorance : the failure of American public schools by Martin L Gross( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a series of shocking revelations, Mr. Gross describes how the typical teacher learns little more than a two-year community college graduate; how the average college-bound student scores fifty points higher on his SAT exams than most of his teachers; how the great majority of school teachers are less trained in their own specialties than other college graduates in the same field; and how "untrained" teachers in both private and public schools perform better than Establishment graduates." "The usual remedies - from federal aid to smaller class sizes - have done nothing to alleviate these problems because they make no attempt to challenge the Education Establishment's control. In a powerful Bill of Indictment, Mr. Gross shows how the teaching vocation, aided by its unions, maintains a self-perpetuating cycle of low performance, and he offers his own detailed prescription for change that will raise public education to the level our children - and society - need and deserve."--Jacket

Devant la poussée envahissante de la psychologie-psychanalyse-psychiatrie dans divers secteurs de la vie moderne, l'auteur a entrepris une analyse critique bien documentée et il tente de prouver qu'il y a eu un certain abus dans l'importance accordée à ces disciplines pour l'explication et la thérapie de certains troubles, les névroses et les psychoses plus particulièrement.

The end of sanity : social and cultural madness in America by Martin L Gross( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Watching the nation's tradition of fairness and individuality decline, Martin L. Gross describes how it is giving way to a reign of conformity and error, including the insidious "Political Correctness." The crisis he describes goes beyond an attack on reason - actually heralding the end of sanity in American life." "Spearheaded by what he calls the "New Establishment"--A coalition of anti-intellectual academics, bureaucrats, politicians, judges, military leaders, social workers - the concepts that made America great are being thrown onto the cultural scrap heap in favor of a new "experimental" society that favors the few and ignores the many." "Gross argues passionately, with fact and reason that the theories of the New Establishment, which have gained control of virtually every American institution, are a peril to society. One result is that they have replaced the ideal of a single America with separatism. In The End of Sanity, the New Establishment is unmasked as a secular theocracy, a pseudo-religion that gains its power through dogma, which it demands be enforced." "But, says the author, there is a cure for America's ailment once we have diagnosed how deeply social and cultural insanity have infected the nation. Gross gets to the root of the problem, including examining the "gods" of the New Establishment, then provides remedies that can reverse the wrong-headedness."--Jacket

The government racket : 2000 and beyond by Martin L Gross( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1992, Martin L. Gross shocked the nation with his New York Times bestseller, The Government Racket: Washington Waste from A to Z, after which he testified before Congress five times on hidden catastrophic waste. Now he has returned to the scene of the crime and found that things have gotten even worse." "He shows how the claim that the "era of big government is over" is a blatant lie. With 2 percent inflation federal spending rose 7 percent and is now more than $2 trillion annually. The Social Security fund is empty and $1.2 trillion in debt, while its FICA surplus is squandered on everything except the aged." "In this provocative follow-up volume, the author outlines an encyclopedia of new waste, shows what happened to his previous suggestions to cut costs, and lays out a blueprint for government reform that could stop Washington's dysfunctional behavior. In thirty-six chapters he gives scores of examples of giant new waste and abuse including: duplication and overlap cost us billions in 154 different failing job-training programs and 127 different teenage bureaucracies, nine alone in the Department of Justice; billions are routinely wasted on ludicrous Washington projects, from golf courses for congressmen to large cash pensions for hyperactive children; while the taxpayer pays, Washington subsidizes General Motors, Intel, Pillsbury, and scores of giant firms to the tune of $75 billion a year; and the Defense Department regularly flies members of Congress around the world, with spouses, for freebie holidays on liquor-loaded planes."--Jacket
