Topic: Purpose of Education Today

10-second review: Book review of Against Schooling: For an Education That Matters. Stanley Aronowitz. Boulder, CO: Paradigm, 2008, 195 pp. The purpose of education Today? Job readiness.

Comment: Finally, someone has come out and said what everyone knows. The purpose of an education today is to get a job. Aronowitz’s suggestion? Teachers should teach their students to analyze and interpret. I think “What is the purpose of education?” might be a good question for an interview. The answer is not that simple. RayS.
