Summary

"In Chomsky on MisEducation, Noam Chomsky builds a larger understanding of our educational needs, starting with the changing role of schools today, and then broadening our view toward new models of public education for citizenship. Chomsky weaves global technological change and the primacy of responsible media with the democratic role of schools and higher education. A truly democratic society, he argues, cannot thrive in a rapidly changing world unless our approach to education - formal and otherwise - is dramatically reformed." "Chomsky's critique of how our current educational system "miseducates" students - and his prescriptions for change - are essential reading for teachers, parents, school administrators, activists, and anyone concerned about the future."--BOOK JACKET.
