An award-winning journalist says the current crisis in public education is evidence of a system that has outlived its usefulness. And the solution is to abandon the myth that learning must happen in schools.Bringing together current knowledge about how people learn, electronic tools for learning, the demand for life-long learning, the deschooling/homeschooling movement, and the new trend toward grassroots democracy, this book makes a compelling case for formalizing into the mainstream of public education what a variety of futurists and management consultants recognize is already happening on the fringes.
