9780385540124: Schools on Trial: How Freedom and Creativity Can Fix Our Educational Malpractice
Revue de presse :

Advance praise for Schools on Trial:

Schools on Trial is a kaleidoscope of insights, a meteor shower of surprising enlightenments from the freshest, most just, vantage point on the institutional school scene—that of the student victim. Only two short years after graduation from Syosset High School on Long Island, Nikhil Goyal offers the reading public his penetrating reflections on the myriad insults he, his classmates, and millions of young Americans suffer at the hands of a badly designed social machine, and shows how its ‘malpractice’ can be fixed, almost without cost.
 
“What doubles the fascination of Goyal’s book is that Syosset High, from whence his observations stem, was ranked by Newsweek as the 143rd best high school in America and owns a truly impressive array of high awards in academics, athletics, and the arts. Mr. Goyal will show you, in clear language, what the news magazine and other honors-bestowers missed. Buy this one!”
—John Taylor Gatto, New York State Teacher of the Year, 1991; author of The Underground History of American Education

Présentation de l'éditeur :

An all-in attack on the American way of education and a hopeful blueprint for change by one of the most passionate and certainly youngest (twenty) writers of this subject.

Are America's schools little more than cinder-block gulags that spawn vicious cliques and bullying, negate creativity, and true learning and squelch curiosity in their inmates, um, students? Nikhil Goyal, a journalist and activist all of twenty years old whom the Washington Post has dubbed a “future education secretary” and Forbes has named to its 30 Under 30 list, passionately thinks so, and in this book he offers both a scathing indictment of our teach-to-the-test-while-killing-the-spirit educational assembly line and maps out a path for all of our schools to harness children's natural aptitude for learning by creating an atmosphere conducive to freedom and creativity. He prescribes an inspiring educational future that is thoroughly democratic and experiential, and one that utilizes the entire community as a classroom.
