Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Praise for LONG LIFE LEARNING

"Michelle Weise has a knack for distilling the complexities of education, labor, and policy into an integrated approach to building a more hopeful future of work. Weise skillfully links the individual stories of working-age adults to the underlying patterns of dysfunction in the U.S. labor market. In Long Life Learning, Weise shows that the future of work is here, and that we need to act now to construct a learning-to-earning system that works for everyone."
--Byron Auguste, CEO and Cofounder, Opportunity@Work

"A prescient exploration of higher education's coming shift from 'all you can eat in one sitting' to 'what you need when you need it' by one of the most creative and respected thinkers in the field."
--Ryan Craig, author, A New U: Faster + Cheaper Alternatives to College

"Michelle makes a brilliant case not just for the necessity of adults investing in learning throughout their lives, but also for the creation of a new system that systematically supports them across their lives as they do so. This book begins to lay out the puzzle pieces of what that new system should look like."
--Michael B. Horn, author, Choosing College

"By examining economic trends, innovations in education and hiring, and the lived experiences of working learners, Weise reveals the shortcomings of our fragmented education and workforce systems and challenges us to reimagine the future of learning. Weise demonstrates how and why we must all become working learners, and presents a clear, optimistic vision for a new learning ecosystem in which we can all take part."
--Maria Flynn, President and CEO, Jobs for the Future

"Weise brings sky-high projections about the future of work down to earth with forward-looking and actionable steps to advance career-focused learning and training. Her examination of higher education goes beyond the usual calls for change to demonstrate how burgeoning innovations are laying the foundation of a learning ecosystem of the future--flexible enough for all people--to move consistently in and out of learning and work."
--Joseph Fuller, Professor, Harvard Business School and former CEO, Monitor Group
