Reclaiming Education tackles the challenges facing education that really matter -- the ones that academics often ignore, parents demand solutions to and politicians need to confront. Drawing on his global research, James Tooley shows there is an alternative to poor quality and wasteful inefficiency in education -- and that education can be radically transformed to guarantee freedom and higher standards.
Written in Tooley's characteristically lucid and sparkling style, this is the compelling, bold statement of the most controversial educationalist of contemporary times.
