Summary
An all-in attack on the American way of education and a hopeful blueprint for change by one of the most passionate and certainly youngest (twenty) writers of this subject. Are America's schools little more than cinder-block gulags that spawn vicious cliques and bullying, negate creativity, and true learning and squelch curiosity in their inmates, um, students? Nikhil Goyal, a journalist and activist all of twenty years old whom the" Washington Post" has dubbed a future education secretary and "Forbes" has named to its 30 Under 30 list, passionately thinks so, and in this book he offers both a scathing indictment of our teach-to-the-test-while-killing-the-spirit educational assembly line and maps out a path for all of our schools to harness children's natural aptitude for learning by creating an atmosphere conducive to freedom and creativity. He prescribes an inspiring educational future that is thoroughly democratic and experiential, and one that utilizes the entire community as a classroom
Summary
A scathing assessment of the American educational system shares recommended strategies for change involving a refocus on freedom and creativity over standardized tests
