Education is broken and most graduates are broke. The purpose of this book is to start an important dialogue about college education. I will make the case for why I believe 70% of college students should drop out. The concept of giving our trust to the educational system without accountability has not worked. I believe it's time to ask serious questions: Why do we go to college in the first place? - Who should go to college and who shouldn't? - Can I succeed and do great things without college? - Why do tuition and textbooks cost as much as they do? - Have colleges simply become a big business (with tax-free status)? - Are the subjects taught in college sufficient for life or do we need an upgrade? Let me clarify something: this is NOT a book that declares that higher education is a terrible thing. Many professions require it, but I believe education can and does take place in many forms. As a college dropout and an autodidact, I've read over 1,200 books in the last 15 years and believe there are many paths we can take to get educated and do great things. Fair Warning: You may have passionate feelings about the points in this book. Regardless of how strong you feel one way or another, my desired outcome is to start a broad dialogue so we can process the issues - together. Ready?

This book illuminates what must always be at the heart of powerful schooling and authentic learning. Its focus is on free learning, with an emphasis on early East Asian thought as a vehicle through which learning may emerge. The volume describes learning as helping the learner become more conscious, more aware. As such the authors explain how quality learning encompasses all learning that is chosen by the learner. It is non-judgmental and their idea is that if learning is done by choice then direct harm will be mitigated because quality, willed learning is not just about the individual, but includes others — it is community focused as well as self-determined. In the first part of the volume the authors look specifically at how quality willed learning can inform the state and how it can protect the rights of children. The second part looks at what quality willed learning can mean to leaders. In the last part the authors look at what it can mean for teachers and finally what it can mean for the learners themselves.

Teaching is often seen as an identity process, with teachers constructing and enacting their identities through daily interactions with students, parents and colleagues. This volume explores how conducting video analysis helps teachers gain valuable perspectives on their own identities and improve classroom practice over time. This form of interactional awareness fosters reflection and action on creating classroom conditions that encourage equitable learning. The volume follows preservice English teachers as they examine video records of their practice during student teaching, and how the evidence impacts their development as literacy teachers of diverse adolescents. By applying an analytic framework to video analysis, the authors demonstrate how novice teachers use positioning theory to transform their own identity performance in the classroom. Education scholars, teachers and professional developers will greatly benefit from this unique perspective on teacher identity work.

In Democracy and Leadership, Weber draws from Plato’s virtues of the ideal city, updated with democratic values and insights from John Dewey, to present both a general and a democratic theory of leadership. Central to the project is the democratic turn away from thinking of leadership as persons to thinking of it as a process open to all.

The need for "educational reform" has once again returned to our national discourse. However, despite many years of federal, state and local legislative mandates and school reform initiatives, remarkably few substantive changes have occurred within the standard public school classroom. Classes of 25 students, sitting in rows, at desks, in rooms that are often too small, under the direction of an individual teacher, continue to be the norm. The time for an honest re-examination of failed "outside-in/top down" educational reform policies is beyond urgent. We must shift our focus to the requisites of those who do the actual educating: Teachers! Hank Warren is passionate about the "calling" of teaching. "It Simply Must Be Said' focuses on the issues facing education from the perspective of an active public school teacher via a collection of observations, experiences, stories and recommendations from 34 years in teaching. Throughout the book Hank addresses serious concerns with humor and relevant tales of actual events. During his career, Hank has taught at every level, kindergarten through 12th grade. Consequently, his insights are drawn from the uncommon experience of having worked with students from age five to eighteen. Hank's innovative teaching methods have resulted in his presenting workshops at local, state and national educators conferences, and publishing articles in educator journals. As Founder, CEO and CFO of a unique community based education program, Hank has organized and led numerous student tours throughout the country. Hank has also taken advantage of the opportunity to accompany his wife, who serves on the board of a highly successful credit union, to numerous national and world credit union conferences. This has afforded him the rare chance to interact with educators from an extraordinary number of states and countries. The wealth of information gleaned from these travel experiences have significantly shaped his understanding of the common issues that permeate education.
