In their coauthored book, The School Reform Landscape: Fraud, Myth,
and Lies, Tienken and Orlich take an in-depth and controversial look
at school reform over the last 60 years through the lens of critical

vibrant unitary system of public education and the ongoing assault by
corporate and elite interests to create a dual system.
The following events, proposals, and policies will be covered:
- A Nation at Risk
- Big Business Values in Education
- No Child Left Behind
