Editorial Reviews

Review

"Why School? How Education Must Change When Learning and Information are Everywhere is mandatory reading for anyone who cares about the education of their children. It is the perfect jumping off point for anyone interested in beginning or continuing a conversation on the long overdue changes that are schools need to undergo in order to provide a relevant learning experience for our students." ~Patrick Larkin, Assistant Sup. for Learning, Burlington (MA) Public Schools

"As a teacher, father, and educational visionary, Will Richardson tears down the walls around the classroom and rethinks what schools can and should be. Listen to him. Learn from him." ~Jeff Jarvis, Author, What Would Google Do?

"Will Richardson beautifully and disturbingly captures the new reality of learning. Why School? shows us an exciting future unfolding before our very eyes, and leaves you breathless about what to do about it! ~Michael Fullan, Professor Emeritus, OISE/University of Toronto

"A must read for parents! Why School? is the right text to help frame important conversations between parents and schools, students and teachers, teachers and administrators, school districts and communities. Right Question .....Right Time!" ~Lisa Brady, Superintendent, Dobbs Ferry (NY) Schools

"Written by a parent, an educator, and a teacher of teachers, Why School? offers a set of useful tools for thinking about the fundamental and crucial question posed by the very title of this book". ~Howard Rheingold, Author, Net Smart

"Why School offers bigger dreams for the networked age, where we use new technologies to envision and design entirely new models of teaching and learning, where we seek to fulfill human potential rather than covering a dusty curriculum." ~Justin Reich, Harvard Graduate School of Education
