Zig's Book gets mainstream press attention

Linda Seebach of The Rocky Mountain News has an article, Education elite strangle a superior program, on Zig's new book:

I've been reading one of the most important education books you'll likely never have a chance to read. It's by Siegfried Engelmann, and it's about Direct Instruction, the structured curriculum he began to develop in the early 1960s, how DI participated in a federal study called Project Follow Through, and how the results of that study - which demonstrated that DI produced superior outcomes for at-risk children - were essentially disappeared from the educational landscape by hostile educators and bureaucrats.

Go read it.
