About this title

Synopsis:

Note: NO PRODUCT ACCESS INCLUDED AMAZON.COM VERSION OF THE TEXT.

Suppose two people with identical education paths and GPAs graduate from the same college at the same time. Fast forward ten years. One is well-adjusted in the "real world" and the other is a train wreck. Why?

The problem is practical life skills. Why hasn't anyone taken ownership of teaching topics in financial literacy, career dynamics, legal basics, and personal wellness? Given the staggering costs and implications for our society, what do we do about it? It is everyone's problem. It's Our Bad.

Acceleron Learning was developed to address these issues, by experts who are also practitioners-PhDs, MDs, CPAs, CFPs, MBAs, MLHRs, and JDs. It uses engaging video lectures and powerful planning tools to teach practical life skills online. If you care about the future of your family, your employees, or your students-you need to read this book. Together, we can impact the lives of the people we care about the most-for the better!

PRAISE FOR ACCELERON LEARNING

While discussing implementation plans for Acceleron Learning at the University of Dayton: "Acceleron is timely and fascinating. My son needs this product."

- Dr. Daniel J. Curran: President, The University of Dayton


"As a workplace learning researcher, and former career/academic advisor at Stanford University, I have seen first-hand what Our Bad illustrates -the surprising unpreparedness of young people for the world of work. Acceleron Learning's products offer organizations, academic institutions, and students a way to begin solving the problem."

- Dr. Natalie Lundsteen: Research Associate, University of Oxford & Educational Consultant
