|Public education is in crisis and the numbers tell a story that can no longer be ignored. According to various polls, 70% of teachers are disengaged. The United States ranks last among industrialized nations for college graduation levels. Yet the current system of education and its school buildings, with teachers standing in front of a classroom lecturing to students, is entrenched, and nearly unchanged since the 19th century. The mission of this book is to spread hope for reform, and equip parents, educators, administrators and communities so they may become full partners in the human-centered learning revolution. This book gives a very compelling why and, more importantly, a clear roadmap for the new territory.
