American K-12 is vastly expensive but often described as wallowing in mediocrity.

Price's forte is explaining the flaws and dysfunction found throughout the public schools. We can't improve the schools until the public understands more about the individual gimmicks and sophistries.

Reading shouldn't be taught with Sight-words. Arithmetic shouldn't be taught with Common Core Math. Facts and knowledge shouldn't be taught with Constructivism. These are the three worst offenders but representative of a general incoherence in our theories and methods. Get rid of the fake methods and the schools will automatically improve.

Price has published two collections of education articles: The Education Enigma (2009) and Saving K-12: What happened to our public schools? How do we fix them? (2017).

Price Is also a novelist, poet, and artist.
