review 1: I think this is a powerful manifesto, with a lot of ideas to discuss. A key idea is how school was essentially a political tool to help the industrial economic system prosper, but as we have left the industrial model and moved to a connected, information abundant age, the current school system is no longer just limiting & damaging human potential, but is also producing kids inadequate for the world they are entering.
review 2: As usual, Seth gets you to question everything you think you know. This time, he challenges the old-fashioned and out-of-date US school curriculum. Sure, the system works in the sense that it produces factory workers - in other words, kids who are taught to keep their heads down, follow the rules and take direction from others. Unfortuna
... moretely, the job market is no longer looking for compliant employees who can't think for themselves. Companies want individuals who lead and innovate which means if things continue the way they have been, a lot of people will find themselves falling behind before they even get started. Overall, a quick and thought-provoking read that will make you see things much differently. less

I don't know what is it about this book that it's so good that it hurts to read. Eye-opener.
The book is good. It is just a subject I am not interested in.
Imperdível para qualquer professor ou pai.
