Only Connect: The Way to Save Our Schools

#ad
Sarah Crichton Books #ad - And the impact of that on all of us will be devastating. Only connect is a call for not just parents but the entire nation to reconceive our relationship with public education. All is not lost, says rudy crew, though, who has headed some of the largest and most daunting school systems in America. Our eighth graders are fifteenth, below Malaysia and Slovakia.

If these stats don’t make you angry or ashamed or plain sad, then at the very least they should make you afraid. And by the time they’re fifteen years old, our students have slipped off the map—to twenty-fourth place internationally. Not by any means. If we’re to survive, we must place our schools at the center of our communities and partner with them to produce children with the full set of the tools they’ll need—personal, civic, and occupational as well as academic—to face the economic challenges that lie ahead.

If matters don’t change soon, tens of millions of our sons and daughters will grow up unable to function—let alone compete—in a global economy. Much like thomas friedman in the world is flat, Crew shows us the reality of our schools in a new century, and what we each must do to create the next generation of mature and conscious contributors to society.
