“We are not going to fix education by fixing the schools. They have served us very well in the past, but they are a 19th-century invention trying to cope with a 21st-century society” (p. 142). This is the conclusion that these authors make. This text, focused more on K-12 than post-secondary education, lays out some very interesting arguments for the implementation of life-long, multi-generational learning experiences that are the antithesis of our current public school system.
I found many interesting ideas in this book, which in many ways mirrors my own thoughts about our current educational system.
