Thought provoking information on why schools work, or do not

Edward Fiske has distilled some of the information about a movement in education which could make the public school system a viable institution for all children. Without change in our schools, there is a serious question of whether they will provide the needed training to make our children readily employable in the global economy, and the changes discussed in this book might well be a beginning for a new type of school that will allow children to succeed in life, rather than just put in time until "graduation" from high school. I would highly recommend the book for anyone interested in working toward change from outdated educational methods to a different approach to teaching and learning which could offer real hope for making our schools a more positive factor in shaping children's lives.
