This book was written in 2001 and so it includes lots of discussion about initiatives for developing sustainable education but in the last twelve years I do not think that we have seen very much progress. In some ways it is too idealistic and not sufficiently practical. The great hope is for transformative change but this will not happen unless there is either impending doom or a very strong ground-swell of opinion. Neither of these possibilities exist.

The arguments are also slightly undermined by inclusion of too much "holistic" new age waffle. Fundamentally why is a student going to pay £9000 a year to a university? Because they want a job. So the capitalist, free-market education, targeting employment and wealth generation, rather than the development of students has triumphed and sustainable education has been vanquished at least for the foreseeable future.

Easy to read if you are interested in the topic, very informative and small enough to carry in your handbag.

Education as if children and the future matters 18 Dec 2010
By Jim M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the best book I have seen to provide an antidote for our failing educational system. Presently, politicians and educational policy makers are leading our children like lemmings into an unsustainable future. The current obsession with testing, technology, competition and consumption will hardly prepare our children to deal with the social, economic, and environmental consequences of population explosion, climate change, declining water supplies, threats to food security, and the breakdown of life sustaining ecosystems. Stephen Sterling provides a paradigm for an authentic education that emphasizes holistic and systemic thinking that will help students better understand the complexities of our rapidly changing world and learn the core values, skills and behaviors needed for truly democratic, equitable, and sustainable future.

Fantastic book! We had to read it for graduate school, and it's one of those books that had me nodding my head along with it, and underlining parts of it constantly.
