Published by RowmanLittlefield
Learning Not Schooling: Reimagining the Purpose of Education examines how both the curiosity and the initiative of students in their formative years can be stimulated by partnering local schools with the world of adult work and professional expertise. This tactic addresses some of the issues that seem to continually plague us, such as how to help students learn more effectively in the modern age, or how to more fully address some of the perpetual inequities between different socioeconomic groupings. Drawing on his experiences from founding and directing a private school for students age six to fourteen, Lyn Lesch presents a new model for education in which learning for students increasingly occurs in the world of adult expertise, with classroom teachers taking on the role of conduits that not only prepare students to learn from professionals working in various fields but also assist them in absorbing the advanced information and knowledge they will be acquiring.
