Nobody Can Teach Anyone Anything Author:W. R. Wees Why Johnny still can't read — Students are rioting-dropping out-taking drugs. They claim that school is a bore, irrelevant, a prison. Are they merely ungrateful and lazy, or are they telling us the truth? In this new book, a brilliant educator takes a challenging look at today's educational system and asks some hard questions: — -Why does teach... more »ing provide little for the cultivation of uniqueness in each child?
-Do teachers rule by force, fear and ridicule?
-Are the schools doing an adequate job?
-Are they any better than they were 100 or 200 years ago?
Despite the so-called changes in education, the author shows how schools today are still the same old place they have always been-the teachers talk and the children listen. He suggests a new approach; one that will help children to gain knowledge out of their own mental and physical abilities. He tells us what must be done to create innovative teachers, schools, and school systems, and what parents can do to promote their child's intellectual growth. Required reading for every prospective teacher and parent.« less
