BOOK Review: "Merrow’s latest book, Addicted to Reform: A 12-Step Program to Rescue Public Education, takes its name from the Alcoholics Anonymous guide for recovery. It’s about everyone hooked on “quick fixes for deep systemic problems,” and it offers many memorable observations and suggested alternatives.

BOOK REVIEW: "MERROW, WITH FOUR DECADES OF EXPERIENCE AT NPR AND PBS, RECALLS THE LEGACIES OF “BLINDLY WORSHIPPING TEST SCORES.” UNDER ARNE DUNCAN, JOEL KLEIN AND MICHELLE RHEE ET AL. AND WITH FUNDING BY THE BILLIONAIRES BOYS CLUB, TEST SCORES BECAME MORE SOUGHT AFTER THAN “THE HOLY GRAIL.' MERROW CONCLUDES, 'TEST SCORES ARE [REFORMERS’] ADDICTION, THE EQUIVALENT OF CRACK COCAINE, OXYCODONE, OR CRYSTAL METH.'" https://nondoc.com/2017/09/23/addicted-to-reform-teacher-shortage/
BOOK REVIEW: In “Addicted to Reform: A 12-Step Program to Rescue Public Education”, John Merrow lets it all out. Merrow, the winner of the George Polk Award and two George Foster Peabody Awards, leads us down “Memory Lane,” republishing his astonishing journalism that predates “A Nation at Risk,” and its warning against “a rising tide of mediocrity.” https://dianeravitch.net/2017/09/11/john-thompson-reviews-john-merrows-addicted-to-reform-and-loves-it/
