BRUCE DEITRICK PRICE is a life-long novelist, painter, poet and
essayist. Along the way, he was always fascinated by education: the subjects that are taught; the methods used to teach them;
and why the whole process isn't more skillfully organized.

SEPTEMBER, 2016: Lots of
excitement on the literary front.
I created 5 PDF booklets about
reading, Latin, and education in general.
The titles are: An Introduction to Phonics ($2.50); Latin Lives On
($2.50); A Quick Look at How Sight-Words Harm Children (free);
War Against Reading ($3); Why Schools Fail--The Real
Please download them and send to as many people as you can.
JUNE, 2014: I was introduced on a Philly radio show as "one of the
ten people in the country who can explain what's going on in education."
* 50+ YouTube videos reach combined views of 2,250,000.
Wow! * Who's Who in America 2014.
* Concern about declining literacy led to "54: Preemptive Reading," "61:
Early Literacy Pack,"
S P R E A D T H E W O R D:
It's elementary, my dear
Watson. The only way we save education is that
lots more people get informed and get angry!!

NB: Improve-Education.org starts from a profound
concern for school, student, and teacher. “Educators,” on this site, never refers to teachers. It refers to the
managers at the top, people with PhD's in Education. The more you study education in the US, over the last century, the more
you suspect that most of these so-called educators are far-left ideologues. It's a sad story; for more of it, please see "21:
A Tribute to Rudolf Flesch."
