Arthur E. Lean's irreverent and con-troversial essays represent the distillation of many ideas about education--ideas developed during most of a lifetime spent in and about schools. In the second edition of this popular work, to which he has added eight new essays, he presents his latest observations on current ele-ments and programs in education--such as the grading system, academic rank, the teaching process, assessment of edu-cational progress--concluding that many of them are not only unnecessary but actually harmful to the very process which they are supposed to serve. Covering a broad spectrum of current issues in its criticism of American edu-cation at all levels, And Merely Teach is a book to be read by veteran educator, beginning teacher, and lay citizen alike. Though critical of the teaching profes-sion, Arthur Lean also offers constructive suggestions in the form of practical solu-tions that are urgently needed to save our ailing educational system.
