Building a Learning Culture in America takes an incisive, no-holds-barred look at how America embraced and cultivated a culture of learning in the past, how that culture declined in the sixties and seventies, and what must be done to regain it. From political gridlock to systemic discrimination, Chavous details the many ways education today is off track, and cites specific examples of what Americans might do to reform it. Part memoir and part manifesto, this is a frank, fascinating, and personal account of Chavous’ experience as a politician working to enact school choice in Washington, DC, and throughout the United States. During the course of his political career, he has seen political skirmishes and party scuffles interfere with the United States’ ability to improve its educational system. These conflicts did not cause the problem; they were merely a result. The true problem was more basic: the decline of America’s learning culture. This pivotal work calls for Americans to unite in making the changes needed to reestablish a learning culture as an inherent piece of the American national fabric, and tells us how to begin.
