5.0 out of 5 stars Outside the Box, September 19, 2013

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The School Revolution: A New Answer for Our Broken Education System (Hardcover)
As children we are told that it is good to think outside of the box by our teachers. Then they proceed to indoctrinate us on inside the box thinking for the next twelve-sixteen years.

If you recognize there are serious problems with schooling in America, realize that reforms have failed to right the ship over and over again, and don't know what else we can do about it, then this book is for you.

This is a little outside of the box thinking towards education in America. It's about time and I highly recommend it.

It's only "outside the box" if you think a return to the system of schooling from the early 1800s, via the Internet, is forward-thinking. Some libertarians might think that sounds like a good idea, but to do so completely ignores WHY our great-great grandparents willingly abandoned that system to begin with. Hint: It didn't work.

The trick is not to expect too much from the schooling system. It will teach you some minimal level of skills, hopefully. You have to educate yourself.
