Book Club - You, Your Child, and School: Navigate Your Way to the Best Education 

Join our learning community for an a.m./p.m. conversation about topics relevant to education today. February's book selection, You, Your Child, and School: Navigate Your Way to the Best Educationby New York Times bestselling author and major proponent for progressive education, Sir Ken Robinson, provides an essential guide to learning about the kind of education children really need.

Book  Details

The High Meadows Center for Progressive Learning is the connecting point between the global shifts in education, how communities are advocating for better learning models for their children, and the sought-after learning experience High Meadows offers its diverse student body. Our book clubs are designed as relationship-building experiences that bring people together in conversation about what's relevant in education today. Texts are carefully chosen to represent the best ideas in progressive learning. 

"Parents everywhere are deeply concerned about the education of their children, especially now, when education has become a minefield of politics and opposing views. Ken Robinson, one of the world’s most influential educators whose TED Talk How Schools Kill Creativity has had over 47 million views and remains the most viewed TED talk of all time, has had countless conversations with parents about the dilemmas they face with regard to finding the best school, teacher and curriculum for their child.

All parents want their children to succeed. As a parent, what should you look for in your children’s education? How can you tell if their school is right for them and what can you do if it isn’t? Will they rise above the new social hurdles or trip over them? 

Dispelling many myths and tackling critical schooling options and controversies, YOU, YOUR CHILD, AND SCHOOL will inspire teachers, parents, and policy makers alike to rethink the real nature and purpose of schools and education."
