Coming Soon! The MACE Manifesto!
A witty, winsome, and wise tome written about the stuff that passes for public education, Dr. John Trotter and Mr. Norreese Haynes do a great service for Americans by exposing this sham and farce which poses as “public education” but really serves as an Educational Industrial Complex which provides huge salaries for appointed superintendents whom they describe as “educational sluts” and for opportunistic businessmen who circle the road kill (viz., public education) like hungry buzzards. These buzzard-business tycoons are now driving, according to Trotter and Haynes, the curricula of the public schools and engineering the biggest heist of public funds for private use since the post-Civil War days when Jesse and Frank James saw that the banks were where the money was held and therefore drew the conclusion that they would start raiding the banks and not the poor Civil War widow down the street. Trotter and Haynes use many interesting metaphors and real life experiences with teachers to illustrate just what has been happening the last thirty years in American Public Education…or, as they say in “APE.”
John Trotter and Norreese Haynes say that this is a “politically incorrect, irreverent, and scatological examination of the bullshit that is involved in American Public Education (APE).” Indeed it is! They unabashedly delve into a scatological examination of the “bullshit,” sparing no feelings. They make no pretense of being gnostic and effete educators; yet, when you read the book, you know that they know their stuff and that they are intrepid enough to tell the truth and appear to be impervious to pain.
