This is not another book about what we’re doing wrong in education and why and how to fix it. Jason Goetz is a voracious reader who gives us a historical and world view on what has been considered the roles of education.
Unfortunately, the people who need to read this don't read. They are so busy filling out papers and defending their beliefs and actions they are emotionally exhausted. They do not admit that what they believe and are doing is more harmful than helpful. Ditto to politicians, government workers, and private individuals whose “Me first, me only” attitude and behavior is a main cause of the present moral decline. The result - political, ecological, and financial crises.From elementary through graduate school he gives specific instances of the self-protective stance many educators and professors take and what they are willing to do those who challenge their authority.Examples of teachers and professors too insecure and dishonest to admit that a student could possibly know than they so punished him by giving him a much lower grade than the one he had earned. When his appeal was rejected he went to each higher level. Self-protection meant no justice. No surprise the injustice results when the insecure are challenged.His explanations of morality and virtues are excellent and should be posted in place of all photos of those hypocrites who profess them publicly, but lie, cheat, and pervert their office or role. People should at least read those chapters.
