Schools on Trial is an all-in attack on the American way of education and a hopeful blueprint for change by one of the most passionate and certainly youngest writers on this subject. Are America’s schools little more than cinder-block gulags that spawn vicious cliques and bullying, negate creativity and true learning, and squelch curiosity in their inmates, um, students? Nikhil Goyal—a journalist and activist all of twenty years old, whom The Washington Post has dubbed a “future education secretary” and Forbes has named to its 30 Under 30 list—definitely thinks so. In this book he both offers a scathing indictment of our teach-to-the-test-while-killing-the-spirit educational assembly line and maps out a path for all of our schools to harness children’s natural aptitude for learning by creating an atmosphere conducive to freedom and creativity. He prescribes an inspiring educational future that is thoroughly democratic and experiential, and one that utilizes the entire community as a classroom.

This book contains examples of effective and ineffective trial techniques that are seldom, if ever, taught in law schools. These examples are real, not hypothetical, and have been compiled from the author's experiences as: A Navy JAG lawyer for three years; A trial lawyer in practice for thirty years; and A federal courtroom deputy for almost ten years. In this position, he was able to observe over eighty trials and contested hearings as a neutral observer and to discuss with jurors at the conclusion of trials to learn what they considered effective and ineffective trial techniques. MR. BRUESS graduated cum laude from both the University of Minnesota (1959) and the Indiana University School of Law (1963). From 1961-1962, he was a member of the Indiana Law Journal and was a Note Editor during the 1962-1963 school year. Upon graduation from law school, he was selected for membership in the Order of the Coif. Following the completion of Officer Candidate School, Mr. Bruess served as a legal officer with the Judge Advocate General Corps of the United States Navy from 1964-1967. From 1967-1997, Mr. Bruess was a trial lawyer with Barnes & Thornburg in Indianapolis, Indiana. From 1999-2008, he served as a courtroom deputy for the Honorable David F. Hamilton of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana."

"A superior book. . . . Many readers will be surprised to see that today's arguments about history education follow the culture wars that go back to almost the beginning of the republic. Moreau's writing is engaging, with brilliant flashes of insight, as well as balance and wit." -Gary B. Nash, Director of the National Center for History in the Schools Taking Frances FitzGerald's textbook study America Revised as a point of departure, Joseph Moreau in Schoolbook Nation challenges FitzGerald's premise that the 1960s were the beginning of the end of the glory days of American history education. Moreau recounts how in the late twentieth century, cultural commentators such as historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. and politician Newt Gingrich preached that a new identity crisis had shaken American history in the sixties, and that the grand unified view of our past had given way to various interest groups, who dismantled the old national narrative while demanding a more "inclusive" curriculum for their children. Moreau discovered, however, that American history, while grand, has never been unified. Delving into more than 100 history books from the last 150 years, the author reveals that the efforts of pressure groups to influence the history curriculum are nearly as old as the mustiest textbook. "For those who would influence textbooks and teaching-Protestant elites in the 1870s, Irish-Americans in the 1920s, and conservative politicians today-the sky has always been falling," according to Moreau. Schoolbook Nation offers a history lesson of its own: when the story of the past is written or rewritten, truth is often a victim. With its comprehensive treatment of the subjects of honesty and politics in the teaching of history, this is an essential book on the side of truth in a complex debate.

This is a selection of my “Letters to the Editor” that were published in two local dailies, The Star and New Straits Times (NST), over the period from Dec 2007 to August 2013. These letters relate my experiences in leading and managing schools and embody my thoughts and propositions for school improvement, enrichment as well as innovation. The letters are not presented in chronological order following their dates of publication. Instead, they are grouped according to specific sections of interest. Nevertheless, I am mindful of the fact that school matters often overlap and school issues cannot be tackled in discrete units. An integrated and holistic approach should be applied. And, thinking out of the box so as to bring about innovation and even “transformation” is very much advocated all through my letters. Schools are where national education policies are being piloted, modified and if appropriate, then implemented in full. Stake holders for the wellbeing, upgrading and progress of a school must of necessity include more than merely its students, parents, teachers and administrators. ix The Education Ministry, state and district education offices, other related ministries, the community, private sectors and certainly some non-government organizations (NGOs), all have important roles to play in ensuring the smooth and efficient running of our schools. I have looked within and outside of schools for causes and effects that have bearing on school matters. The letters included in the “Values” section in particular, bear out the familial and societal influence and impact on school life. It is hoped that this compilation can be a useful reference and resource materials for all planners, executors, learners and evaluators of our school improvement initiatives and programmes.

Raymond Callahan's lively study exposes the alarming lengths to which school administrators went, particularly in the period from 1910 to 1930, in sacrificing educational goals to the demands of business procedures. He suggests that even today the question still asked is: "How can we operate our schools?" Society has not yet learned to ask: "How can we provide an excellent education for our children?"

Perhaps the most spectacular reaction to court-ordered busing in the 1970s occurred in Boston, where there was intense and protracted protest. Ron Formisano explores the sources of white opposition to school desegregation. Racism was a key factor, Formisano argues, but racial prejudice alone cannot explain the movement. Class resentment, ethnic rivalries, and the defense of neighborhood turf all played powerful roles in the protest. In a new epilogue, Formisano brings the story up to the present day, describing the end of desegregation orders in Boston and other cities. He also examines the nationwide trend toward the resegregation of schools, which he explains is the result of Supreme Court decisions, attacks on affirmative action, white flight, and other factors. He closes with a brief look at the few school districts that have attempted to base school assignment policies on class or economic status.
