One Size Does Not Fit All : A Student's Assessment of School
This book was highly recommended at the recent NZPF conf in Melbourne.
Every nine seconds, a student drops out of school. Why? For a majority, school was not relevant to them. The education system isn't broken -- it's doing exactly what it was intended to do so -- create compliant cogs in machines. It's outdated. It's dangerous. And it's suppressing millions of children around the country.
In One Size Does Not Fit All, 17-year-old Nikhil Goyal offers a groundbreaking prescription for transforming American schools. Drawing from hundreds of interviews with renowned thinkers like Howard Gardner, Seth Godin, Dan Pink, Noam Chomsky, Diane Ravitch, and Frank Bruni, Goyal calls to radically redefine the way the country does schooling. From implementing an anti-disciplinary curriculum to reinventing the teaching profession, his propositions are timely and provocative. Goyal walks us through the tenets of the system, shattering claims dispersed in the education conversation.
Praise for this book:
This unique book gives you a student's view to school and education reform unlike any volume written by academic scholars. It is fresh inspiring and awakening. Simply a must read for anybody interested in today's schools and how they should look tomorrow"
