Praised by critics across the nation, The Graves of Academa is Mr. Mitchell's angry and brillant tour through America's bloated public school system - whose mangled, self-serving language and policies would make Orwell wince. Stamped with his wit and laced with stinging examples from The Underground Grammarian, The Graves of Academa pinpoints the historic sources of the mind-boggling "educationist" bureaucracy and reveals why today's schools are riddled not only with illiterate students, but with illiterate teachers and administrators as well.
