Review: Paideia Proposal

Paideia Proposal
Paideia Proposal by Mortimer J. Adler

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Adler confronts the many problems with the current American educational system head on and proposes practical alternatives. Among the topics which Adler discusses are the need to reform curriculum along a classical liberal arts line, the need for teachers to change their approach to one of Socratic dialogue, the need to create a real equality of opportunity in this nation, and the need to work to make children into creators, innovators, and thinkers. It is common to hear complaints about teachers, about students, about government interference, about the education system, and so on. If you are looking for a book that proposes viable, necessary, and practical alternatives to the current system, this is that book. This is a must-read for parents, teachers, and anyone else interested in providing the best education possible for their children.
