But how to translate that goal into national policy and the real world of the classroom is hardly unanimous - largely because the translation is itself rooted in personal convictions and assumptions that are often without any solid empirical research support. We assume, for example, that classroom time that is not on task is really time wasted and that students will learn more if they were kept busy and focused every minute of the school day. The problem with this is that research (and even our own experience) shows that the on task assumption simply is not valid.

In Ten Common Myths in American Education Mordechai Gordon, who is quickly establishing himself as one of the top Educational Foundations scholars in this country, directly examines ten such assumptions. He points out that all of them, despite their popularity and public acceptance, are grounded on thin or nonexistent research - and that they are effectively subverting the fundamental educational goal upon which we all agree.

Ten Common Myths is a book that will open your eyes - whether you are an administrator, policy maker, teacher, parent, or student. It will help you begin to reevaluate what our schools really should be doing. And maybe, just maybe, the conversation will begin that will result in schools where the real needs of students and our society are actually met.
