The One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined
"... Khan rethinks existing assumptions and imagines what education could be if freed from them. His core idea - liberating teachers from lecturing and state-mandated calendars and opening up class time for truly human interaction has become his life's passion. Schools seek his advice about connecting to students in a digital age, and people of all ages and backgrounds flock to the site to utilize this fresh approach to learning.
In THE ONE WORLD SCHOOLHOUSE, Khan presents his radical vision for the future of education, as well as his own remarkable story, for the first time" (Source)
Like many other youngsters, I grew frustrated by the current state of "schooling" and formed a rebel, but often bias and superficial opinion towards the existing problems in the education system. We all know that teaching by the rules of the 19th century it's not working anymore, but we lack a systemic view and the understanding of multiple organizations, policies, and jobs involved. It's a highly political subject in every single country you'd pick and change is difficult. This book brings a great review of the historic factors, motivations, and at times philosophic visions behind the education system. A refreshing read.
