    A startling wake-up call about appalling conditions prevailing in American schools, The War on Kids contradicts popular wisdom.
  3. Offering neither balance nor solutions (a segment on the overuse of medications like Ritalin is especially powerful, but especially in need of counterargument), The War on Kids questions what kind of citizens we are producing.
