Sound of Money by Darrell M. West

Book Description

In recent years, important battles have been fought over health care reform, telecommunications deregulation, and Medicare, to name just a few. The interest groups most successful at influencing policy are those with the most money to spend on advertising and lobbying. West and Loomis caution that as the "sound" of money in American politics grows louder, this new group activism will increasingly affect-and maybe even threaten-the viability of representative government.

Slow, incremental change has become a relic of the past. Today's shifts come fast and big.

West says that we should alter our expectations about the speed and magnitude of political and social change.

Digital Schools by Darrell M. West Digital Schools, Paperback (July 2013)

Nearly a century ago, famed educator John Dewey said that "if we teach today's students as we taught yesterday's, we rob them of tomorrow."
