Kort om boken
Om Why School?
In the tradition of Jonathan Kozol, this little book is driven by big questions. What does it mean to be educated? What is intelligence? How should we think about intelligence, education, and opportunity in an open society? Why is a commitment to the public sphere central to the way we answer these questions?Drawing on forty years of teaching and research, from primary school to adult education and workplace training, award-winning author Mike Rose reflects on these and other questions related to public schooling in America. He answers them in beautifully written chapters that are both rich in detaila first-grader conducting a science experiment, a carpenter solving a problem on the fly, a college students encounter with a story by James Joyceand informed by a deep and powerful understanding of history, the psychology of learning, and the politics of education.Rose decries the narrow focus of educational policy in our time: the drumbeat of test scores and economic competition. Why School? will be embraced by parents and teachers alike, and readers everywhere will be captivated by Roses eloquent call for a bountiful democratic vision of the purpose of schooling.
