Neil Postman remains oddly prophetic regarding the progress(or regress) of the education system. Though this is almost 30 years old, he presents a disheartening view of the ways in which our system is failing our kids(and it doesn't end in 12th grade). He also presents several solutions that it would be interesting to try(particularly the no- textbook solution).

His disgust for the typical classroom makes me wonder if he practiced what he preached. ( )

Review from 2008:

Finally! A book asking "What is education for?" not just "How can we do education better?" Postman gives a balanced treatment full of great insights. Just take a look at the beginning:
Pg. ix – “I began my career as an elementary school teacher and have not for a single moment abandoned the idea that many of our most vexing and painful social problems could be ameliorated if we knew how to school our young. You may conclude from this that I am a romantic, but not, I think, a fool. I know that education is not the same thing as schooling, and that, in fact, not much of education takes place in school… To the young, schooling seems relentless, but we know it is not. What is relentless is our education, which, for good or ill, gives us no rest. That is why poverty is a great educator. Having no boundaries and refusing to be ignored, it mostly teaches hopelessness. But not always. Politics is also a great educator. Mostly, it teaches, I am afraid, cynicism. But not always. Television is a great educator as well. Mostly it teaches consumerism. But not always.”

There's a big misconception today about what schools are. Most people believe that school = education, and that good grades/academic success = being well educated. But high schools today don't focus education; rather they mostly focus on allocating economic opportunities to those who are capable and eager to obey. And this is an important and remarkable function of schools; otherwise economic opportunities would be determined by inheritance and family connections, as in past generations. But I agree with Postman that this aspect of schooling has become dangerously overemphasized in our society; to the point where learning about society, the original "end" of education, has become nearly driven out of our classrooms. That's the danger of the whole No Child Left Behind and emphasis on standardized test scores. Education has to do with understanding how society works. This can hardly be said of too many schools today. ( )

Im Gegensatz zu Postmans anderen Büchern konnte mich dieses Werk nicht mehr so faszinieren. Ich bin sogar zweimal bei der Lektüre eingeschlafen.
Postman setzt dem Ende der großen Menschheitserzählungen eigene Ideen gegenüber, die sich v.a. in der Schule verwirklichen lassen würden. Ich denke, dass das so stimmt und finde seine Iden gut. Stilistisch vermisste ich bei dem Buch aber den roten Faden, die argumentative Brillianz und die Begeisterungsfähigkeit. ( )

I don't think that I'll ever look at my own education quite same after reading this book. It was an incredibly enlightening book, but not one without faults. I decided to give this book a four instead of a five due to the last 60 pages or so of the book. While the earlier portion of the book held my attention very well and was engaging, the final portion of the book was a bit more difficult to get through. That is not to say that the last part of the book was bad in any way, just a bit more difficult. The ideas contained within the book are extremely interesting. ( )
