It took me a while but...
on 28 June 2010
I hated this book at first due to its highly negative and critical viewpoint against schooling and the education system. The book gives very little view of school in a positive light and any related benefits of education so was starting to feel rather disgruntled and depressed by the biased views in the book. However, once I was into Chapter 3 I began to appreciate the opinions and realised that although some of the statistics in the book are manipulated, it is useful material for my MEd in terms of education today and being able to look at it critically. Not the most cheery of reads but useful.
