Why Can't Our Best Schools Train a Fluent Narrator

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I have tried to listen to this book because the topic, research and assertions really interest me. However, the robotic narration makes it very difficult to tolerate.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Costanzo?

L.J. Ganser, who narrated Class Warfare did a much better job.

made obsolete by 'MostLikelyToSucceed'-still great

if you can read all three.
read this book first
then Creating Innovators
and then Most Likely to Succeed

if you plan on reading only one or two. then "Most likely to Succeed" is the best choice. and creating innovators should come next.

that is not to knock this work. this book contains years of research and expertise and brilliant solutions to our educational impasse

making school spiritually fulfilling and academically rewarding is not only possible and desirable but absolutely necessary for the 21st century

a 21st century world needs to raise children who will be crtical thinkers, expert communicators, skilled collaborators, and innovative creators

we cannot rely on a 20th education for 21st century succees

anyone who wants to change the world for the better must read tony wagner. his ideas are absolutely vital.
