Is your only experience of Education your own? Then try this!
on 16 April 2014
This Kindle edition I read was clear, interesting and kept me reading to the end - chapter after chapter, which is what I very much enjoy in a good read.
The author explained sometimes, complex reasons for why us Brits educated the way we do today. If you decide to give this a read you'll see what I mean... Each chapter can be read on its own - but I was able to get to the end in about 4-5 sittings.
This introduction was easy to understand and the recommended reading at the back contains some useful references including a youtube link of Sir Ken Robinson on the subject of "Changing Education Paradigms", keyword search for it, if you like. Again, why do we teach the way we do? Why do we group young people into batches? As if the most important thing about them is the date of manufacture???
Anyway - hope this review was helpful. This book comes highly recommended.
