The Book

In Education Exposed, Kelly Matthews (writing under a pseudonym) uses her personal experiences in teaching and leading in inner-city schools to explain why public schools are failing and what lawmakers need to do about it. She explains the nuts and bolts of public education and exposes the skeletons in their closet in order to paint an accurate picture of what is really going on in the schools.

With a lighthearted tone, Matthews entertains and informs readers as she helps start important conversations about education–an essential to the personal success of each child and a key ingredient in the future of our nation.
If there is one thing that most individuals agree on regardless of race, gender, or political affiliation it’s that the public education system is failing miserably. Many outsiders claim to know why, but only those on the front lines really know what’s going on: teachers. Education Exposed is an insider’s look at the problems that plague the public education system and possible solutions for real education reform. It is a book of uncomfortable truths that are unsettling but must be addressed if we want to provide for future generations and maintain the integrity of our educational systems.
