Since its first publication in 1995, Lies My Teacher Told Me has gone on to win an American Book Award, the Oliver Cromwell Cox Award for Distinguished Anti-Racist Scholarship, and to sell over half a million copies in its various editions. What started out as a survey of the twelve leading American history textbooks has ended up being what the San Francisco Chronicle calls “an extremely convincing plea for truth in education.” In Lies My Teacher Told Me, James W. Loewen brings history alive in all its complexity and ambiguity. Beginning with pre-Columbian history and ranging over characters and events as diverse as Reconstruction, Helen Keller, the first Thanksgiving, and the Mai Lai massacre, Loewen offers an eye-opening critique of existing textbooks, and a wonderful retelling of American history as it should—and could—be taught to American students. This 10th anniversary edition features a handsome new cover and a new introduction by the author.

Think Sex Ed Is All About The “Facts of Life”? Think Again. If you think sex education is still about the birds and the bees, think again. And it's not about science either. In her shocking exposé, You're Teaching My Child What?, Dr. Miriam Grossman rips back the curtain on sex education today, exposing a sordid truth. Today's sex ed programs aren't based on science; they're based on liberal lies and politically correct propaganda that promote the illusion that children (yes, children) can be sexually free without risk. As a psychiatrist and expert on sexual education, Dr. Grossman cites example after example of schools and organizations whitewashing—or omitting altogether— crucial information that doesn't fit in with their "PC" agenda. Instead, sex educators only tell teens the "facts of life" that promote acceptance, sexual exploration, and experimentation. What sex educators call an education, scientists would call a scam: • Sex educators won't tell girls their bodies are biologically and chemically more susceptible to STDs; they will only say 3 million girls have a sexually transmitted infection • Educators say it's natural for children to "explore" their sexuality from a young age and only they can decide when it's right to have sex—the real truth is neurobiologists say teen brains are not developed to fully reason and weigh consequences, especially in "the heat of the moment" • Teens are told condoms, vaccines and yearly testing provide adequate protection, without being told that studies now show condoms are no match for herpes, HPV and gonorrhea In You're Teaching My Child What?, Dr. Grossman reveals biological truths that you won't find in today's classrooms. You're Teaching My Child What? is critical reading for parents with teens and instrumental in teaching children the truth about sex.

Sex, Lies and Scandal. Oh My! Did that actually happen in the teachers' lounge? Not to mention the mishandling of school funds! What should have been a liberating teaching experience turned out to be a journey of a different sort. The title of Dikombi Gite's book, "Sex, Lies, And A Charter School," forebodes for the prospective reader everything there is to know about what's in store. The story follows Jacoby White who decided to leave his comfortable job as a consultant and chase his dream of teaching. He is given the opportunity to teach at one of the largest and most sought after charter school systems in the country. His meteoric rise from inexperienced teacher to assistant principal is unprecedented and exemplifies his commitment to the school's success. During his short journey, he encounters issues with the children involving adolescent sexuality, anger management inefficiencies, and self-esteem inadequacies. However, he is not prepared for the deceptive and scandalous behavior of the adults charged with guiding these same students. These unscrupulous and disingenuous individuals cause Jacoby to question the priorities of the administration and his belief in the school's mission. As the turmoil and instability increase, Jacoby must decide if fighting the good fight is worth risking his sanity. Attention! This is not the book for you if: *You are looking for a feel good story! *You believe that the education system is fine! *You do not care about the future of our country! *You do not mind your tax dollars going to waste!
