Synopsis: Education Now is a clear and persuasive account of the way in which popular seventeenth- and eighteenth-century theories about the human condition formed the basis for America’s choices in the realms of politics, economics, and education. Theobald chronicles the fate of alternative, less popular ideas about the human condition―ideas that would have led to vastly different political, economic, and educational landscapes than those we experience today. This book exposes the flaws among prevalent theories and the strength of those alternatives that were dismissed or ignored. In so doing, Theobald points the way toward substantive changes across three dimensions ubiquitous to human life: politics, economics, and education.
Paul is using Kickstarter to fund his project The Great American Failure Documentary. He writes "In our current culture, public education has been primarily about increasing one’s power to earn money, or said another way, to ...play a successful role in the nation's economic arena.
The Great American Failure offers viewers the opportunity to see the shortcomings in this approach to education, but also to glimpse a more noble and satisfying approach, one that balances preparation for the economic market with preparation for the political arena."
About the Author: Paul Theobald holds the Woods-Beals Chair in Urban and Rural Education at Buffalo State College. He has published widely in the area of community-based and place-based education and is author of Teaching the Commons: Place, Pride, and the Renewal of Community (Westview 1997).
