Interesting content, persuasive arguments ... Good to get the cogs in the brain ticking over--Sanford Lakoff Recommended by New Statesman--Sanford Lakoff A thought provoking read.--Sanford Lakoff There is a lot of sense here, and anyone who teaches traditional subjects at A-level or lectures at a university will recognise the phenomenon of students who are exemplary in their work-related personal skills, conscientious in their environmentalism and tolerance of diversity, sensible in their eating, drinking and non-smoking - but also utterly uninterested in intellectual debate and incapable of seeing the point of simply knowing more. Furedi makes his case well.--Sanford Lakoff Author article, February 2010.--Sanford Lakoff Furedi build his case methodically and argues it carefully, if not elegantly. He supports it with quotes (shrewdly selected, sometimes repeated) from politicians and educationalists ... the analysis rings true, as does Furedi's defence of a subject-based curriculum and a philosophy of education that recognises the duty of one generation to impart a canon of knowledge to the next.--Sanford Lakoff

Reseña del editor:

Furedi turns his attention to the education system, skilfully analyzing current processes and providing a way forward. Never has so much attention been devoted to education - and the problems with it. Yet we rarely ask why everyone from the government to parents continually obsess about it. Why are we so constantly worried about it? Why do so many of the solutions proposed actually make matters worse? Tony Blair's 'education, education, education' slogan ensured it remained at the forefront of political agendas. However, the more education is talked about the clearer it becomes that education is not considered as a value in its own right. It is praised for its potential contribution to economic development, as a central instrument for encouraging social inclusion and mobility. Increasingly, the promotion of education has little to do with learning as such. This book is a brilliant piece of analysis. No one from Piaget to David Cameron is safe from Furedi's criticism.
