I’m departing from the usual ebook news of iPads, Kindles, apps and the like to address something near and dear to my heart; the education of our youth. Just as we’ve seen shake-ups in the music, movie and now book publishing industries due to advancing technologies, I believe it’s time for a major overhaul of the education industry.
While reading technologies will play an important role, neither teachers, administrators nor politicians will lead the way out of the morass of a failing educational system. Students themselves must be the major movers to secure solutions that will prepare them for their future.
In my last post, I advocated a hunger strike of the mind by students. Since this idea is still percolating in my mind, I’m going to end this post here and hopefully return with something more than a cute catch phrase.
