The history of education is also the history of short-term solutions to deep-seated educational problems. While programs like No Child Left Behind or Common Core Curriculum are well-intentioned, they result in intense fragmentation of energy and resources in schools. This guide critiques many current educational trends and fads, illuminating their underlying motivations and providing holistic, sustainable solutions.
Teachers, school administrators, and policy makers will find this book an eye-opening overview of education trends and fads, and a refreshing outlook on future reform.
As part of the Thinker’s Guide Library, this book advances the mission of the Foundation for Critical Thinking to promote fairminded critical societies through cultivating essential intellectual abilities and virtues across every field of study across world.
