Many of you might remember when Tony Wagner, author of The Global Achievement Gap visited our community several years ago. Wagner, a former high school teacher, K-8 principal, and university professor in teacher education, has a new book that just came out.
In Most Likely to Succeed: Preparing Our Kids for the Innovation Era bestselling author and education expert Tony Wagner and venture capitalist Ted Dintersmith call for a complete overhaul of the function and focus of American schools, sharing insights and stories from the front lines, including profiles of successful students, teachers, parents, and business leaders.
Most Likely to Succeed presents a new vision of American education, one that puts wonder, creativity, and initiative at the very heart of the learning process and prepares students for today’s economy. This book offers parents and educators a crucial guide to getting the best for their children and a roadmap for policymakers and opinion leaders.”
I thought it would be interesting if we read this as a community and shared our thoughts.
