Radical Hope
by Noel Pearson

ISBN: 9781863954440
PUBLISHER: Black Inc.
FORMAT: Paperback

PUBLICATION DATE: 31.08.2009


DESCRIPTION:
Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard have promised an education revolution, but what might that really mean? One of Australia's most original and provocative thinkers turns his attention to the question of education. Noel Pearson argues that nothing is more crucial to future success than a proper education, and that too many in our society are being left behind. He discusses what makes a good teacher and recalls his own education, his mentors and inspirations. From here he widens the discussion to consider what works in the classroom, introducing new findings from research and practice - how and why do people learn? He also looks critically at some of the most difficult and controversial issues. Does education for the many mean a lowering of overall standards? Can one teach empowerment? How might school attendance be enforced? Can one teach critical literacy in the absence of basic literacy? What can be done to stop the loss of indigenous languages? In all of this, Pearson searches for the radical centre - the way forward that combines rights and responsibilities, and ensures that no child will be left behind.
