  • B - What School Could Be. [1] - - The concepts expressed in the book are nothing new and have been said over and over again. Everyone who is involved in education knows the best way to teach students is with deep thinking, real-word problems where students have the opportunity to create, analyze, and produce. Pick up a book by Dewey from the turn of the century (20th century...not 21st) and you'll see these same concepts. The problem is, the people reading the books are educators and not lawmakers, school board members, and the general public. Until this knowledge is brought mainstream, we will continue to see books calling for educational change because there won't be any. -
