Quick Overview

Everyone knows schools need rethinking, but few speak from the
perspectives of children, families and teachers. Most offer simplistic
critiques, creating false opportunities between traditionalist and progressive
viewpoints. Guy Claxton and Bill Lucas suggest something different and more
optimistic. Just as Educating Rita helped us rethink university, the authors of
Educating Ruby invite fresh scrutiny of schools. Educating Ruby is a call to
action for everyone who worries that our school system is not preparing
children for the uncertainties and challenges of the real world. It shows how
we can cultivate confidence, curiosity, collaboration, communication,
creativity, commitment and craftsmanship in children at the same time as
helping them to achieve success in public examinations.
