Abstract

Longtime teacher and current Senior Fellow at the Vermont Society for the Study of Education, Susan Ohanian has authored twenty-three books and over 300 articles published in both reputable and radical journals alike. With such titles as One Size Fits Few: The Folly of Educational Standards, Caught in the Middle: Nonstandard Kids and a Killing Curriculum, and Why Is Corporate America Bashing Our Public Schools?, her books clearly demonstrate that she is one of the most vehement and vocal critics of contemporary education in the United States. In fact, she is a member of the governing board of the Educator Roundtable. This group was formed to counter the efforts of the Business Roundtable, a group that has proven to be quite a powerful voice in determining education policy today. Ohanian maintains a website that functions as a forum for teachers and stakeholders to voice their concerns over practices inflicted by organizations like the Business Roundtable and policies such the No Child Left Behind mandate.
