Wasting Minds offers a smart and tightly reasoned critique of schooling and school reform. He also offers a set of remedies, and shows how to build an education system centred on students and find a way forward to higher student achievement. Learn why so many assumptions guiding political and educational leaders'— standards and testing, longer school days/years, pushing advanced maths classes' —have little prospect of achieving results. And explore a new strategy forward following promising innovations such as individualising instruction, performance assessments and restructuring public education.
