Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of education's best-known observers assembles a hard-hitting collection of essays on school and schooling.

Book News Annotation:

Kohn takes on the recent trend to stress grades and standardized testing in American schools. He compares getting an education to getting through the system, and finds that frustration and lack of real achievement grow in parallel when students are schooled rather than educated. The results, he believes, include a population more likely to be violent and less likely to think reasonably through issues and situations.
