Everybody knows that the truth can be hurtful, but It is time that the public becomes aware of what is really going on in the schools, and why we will never achieve true reform until we remove the fraudulent administrative system that keeps teachers in virtual servitude. New Money For Old Rope is written by Ian Kay, a retired veteran teacher, a gadfly, free from constraints, and willing to reveal the 'dark' side of educational administration, the wasted taxpayer money, the duplicative services, and the attempt of corporate America to implant a business mentality into the system, which will allow them to reap major profits as education goes digital. The book describes corrupt management practices at the administrative level, and a fraudulent system that uses and abuses teachers to obfuscate their own inadequacy. It will expose the devious practices used by administrators, and present ulterior motives concerning the efforts by certain individuals to reform education, only to feed their own selfish interests. These people have a stranglehold on taxpayers and on the children of America, so it is imperative that we reduce the pyramidal structure of educational administration, and allow veteran teachers to take charge of the process. Read how one 'helicopter parent' can destroy the morale of the entire teaching staff by using undue influence to corrupt the administration and the process. Learn why scheduling skills, which are key to a quality education, is being avoided by administrative personnel, and more.
