Traditional public education is at a pivotal juncture in history. A structural divide generated by partisanship creates two major perspectives about America's schooling. This book takes the reader to the brink of the chasm that divides America's schooling. One perspective equips students with the capabilities for navigating precarious-balance, the other adheres to static-balance. These dynamically opposed iterations of balance are the origin of a battle to determine which perspective will control education, and, as a result, control citizenship, government, and individual rights. Throughout this discussion, the tactics and intentions of the foes of public schools are called-out for their devastating impact on teaching, learning, and social reality. This book is a clarion call to defend traditional public schools and their role as the launching pad for the intellectual autonomy and open futures that all US students deserve.

Jeff Swensson is a veteran educator who has served in public schools throughout the Midwest. He is the co-author or author of six books that focus on instruction, curriculum, leadership, finance, student learning, and contemporary issues in traditional public education.
