No Nonsense Guide to Rethinking Education: Whose Knowledge Is It, Anyway?


Manufacturer: New Internationalist

Product Information

"Education is held to be a universal god and its fundamentals are rarely questioned. Yet the education system increasingly resembles a production line: schools are forced to chase a higher league-table position; students learn to pass tests rather than how to think; teachers, increasingly paid by their pupils' results, are ground down by the machine. Worse still, new edu-business corporations are rolling out this model to the Global South.
Things could be so different... This NoNonsense book goes back to basics and asks what the point of schooling really is. It offers not just inspirational examples but shows the creative, fulfilling work in everyday classrooms that is endangered by current trends. And it holds out the prospect of an education that puts students and teachers first – a source of liberation rather than control."

Adam Unwin and John Yandell. New Internationalist Publications, 2016.
