Riassunto: Money, greed, and arrogance. That is what now characterizes the standardized testing business in the United States. The United States Department of Education (USED), with its deep pockets, and an alliance with testing and publishing houses, print and digital media, and universities, has created an ?institutionalization of testing? scheme that guarantees an obscene profit for each of these entities. Who has the courage to stand up for our students and teachers to combat the perversion of equity and fairness that this diabolical partnership permeates on our schools year after year? It takes a special group of individuals to fight this ?Conspiracy.? Join Teddy Jackson (Superintendent), his daughter Margradan (Special Education Student), Tylerbrown Kennedy (Principal), and Mimi Spenser (Teacher) as they encounter murder and kidnapping in their fight for our nation?s students and teachers. Their story will inspire educators and curious readers alike. Cinnamon Snarl? is a must read novel for anyone who cares about the future of America?s schoolchildren and the everyday heroes who have accepted the calling to teach.
L'autore: Joe Cox, Jr. has been a student, teacher, and administrator. He has been a Superintendent of Schools in California and now in Virginia. The novel Cinnamon Snarl? has been two years in the making. An education based novel, it is Joe?s attempt to champion public schools and the everyday challenges that educators face. In particular, Joe has tried to capture the ?cry? that he continually hears from teachers, students, parents, and administrators in regards to the ?gotcha? that mandated standardized testing has become. The alliance between USED, testing and publishing houses, print and digital media, and universities is featured and detailed. The harm being done to our nation?s students and teachers is shameful. This novel is an effort to ?tell their story.? Not a novelist by trade, Joe is an educator and very proud of it. Joe has dedicated much of his life to public education.
