Summary In her provocative new book, education writer and critic Kirsten Olson brings to light the devastating consequences of an educational approach that values conformity over creativity, flattens students' interests, and dampens down differences among learners. She also presents the experiences of wounded learners who have healed and shows what teachers, parents, and students can do right now to help themselves stay healthy
