First published in 1990 and now a classic in its field, and more relevant than ever before, Endangered Minds lays bare the roots of America's escalating crisis in education, presenting clear, scientifically-based explanations for why children today are less able to concentrate, less able to absorb and analyze information, and less able literally to think than previous generations. Arguing that the electronic media, fast-paced lifestyles, and current educational practice all contribute to this decline, Jane M. Healy calls for bold reform in the classroom and offers concrete advice on what parents can do at home -- including carefully monitoring their children's television watching -- to rescue the minds of this and future generations.
