Win Straube, the founder and managing trustee of The Straube Foundation, presents a new form of educational system, Quality Generic Education or 'Qge,' for the purpose of obtaining the best education at the lowest possible cost, universally acceptable and interchangeable. The use of interactive educational materials makes it possible to bring the highest quality educational presentation from the world's best minds to more people. Thus, the classroom can come to anyone at any place where he or she can be in front of a television or computer, possibly accompanied by an educational 'facilitator.' Likewise, anyone exposed to Qge presentations will be able to interact with the best educators in the world: asking questions, receiving additional and deeper background information, and taking tests regardless of a teacher being physically present. Different forms of Qge are discussed from the perspective of costs, the user, and what steps must be taken to ensure quality and cost effectiveness.

About the Author:

Win Straube has made his career in advancing international applications of cutting edge technology with leading high-tech ventures in Europe, North America, and Asia during the last half century. Active as inventor, scientist, and engineer, he is a widely recognized lecturer on international technology transfer, with particular emphasis on means and methods for the reduction of educational costs. He holds degrees in linguistics, economics, and law.

Review:

Is this book relevant to every United States citizen, regardless of their being a parent, teacher, or student? Absolutely....So what is Quality Generic Education? It is identical in quality to "brand name" education that is universally applicable, available to all, and not ideologically directed. In short, it means that an education garnered from a state university would be of equal value to one from Harvard....QGE=A is a greatly researched and fact backed book, offering a lengthy and valuable appendix. The style is straightforward and convincing....I encourage everyone with the slightest interest in our schools and colleges, students and teachers, and our nation's competitive future, to read this book.... (Heather Froeschl Bookreview.Com)

The message of quality generic education is not intriniscally a light topic, but with the author's town meeting approach one can easily ponder and grasp the enormity and complex issues he wishes to convey....pick up this book today and invest in your future. (Deb Fowler Roundtable Reviews)

Author Win Straube has quite the mind for new solutions as an inventor, scientist, and engineer, to connect everyone to the best educators for any given subject in the world. QGE=A: Quality Generic Education is the Answer is something that all educators should read and consider and carries our highest recommendations to community library education shelves. (. Midwest Book Review, May 2008)

This is a book that should not only be read but also acted on. Straube states what I have long believed. Long Distance Education will offer a good quality education without costing a fortune. It will make an education available to the masses. This book is well written and documented. Straube obviously has spent much time thinking through his ideas concerning education. I applaud his efforts. Well done, Mr. Straube! It is with great honor that I highly recommend this book to all parents, educators, students, and politicians. I hope many read this book and reform our education system. (Debra Gaynor Reader Views)
