Your Teacher Said What?!

Kernen, Joe. Your Teacher Said What?! Defending our Kids from the Liberal Assault on Capitalism. New York: Penguin Group, 2011.

I thought this book would be a description of things that have sneaked into the curriculum of our educational system, or bizarre things that teachers are telling students these days, all along the theme of capitalism, progressivism, and our nation's economy.

Instead, this book was a discussion of capitalism, progressivism, and our nation's economy, but with little mention of school, curriculum, teachers, etc.  The book itself is fairly interesting, although its bias is quite obvious, but I was disappointed by the misleading title.
