Changes in the American Education System
The New School:
How the Information Age Will Save American Education from Itself
I have a strong suspicion that the author of this book Professor Glenn Reynolds will not be the keynote speaker anytime soon at any of the national teacher conventions.
And if you take a history class in the Italian Renaissance, you might discover as I did that even back then there was student unrest within organized education as tremendous changes took place.
The professor gives an irreverent and humor-lace 40-minute real-world talk about the dollars and sense of education in the 21st century. It’s a presentation that will leave many with the impression that rethinking and careful planning with respect to the economics of their educational plans will be key.
I did not agree with everything stated, for instance, while it is true not everyone belongs in college, trade may not necessarily be the automatic alternate option.
But the New School book reflects on the trends and changes and money pit consumers will face now and in the future in the educational marketplace.
