"Moe and Chubb have delivered a truly stunning book, rich with the prospect of how technology is already revolutionizing learning in communities from Midland, Pennsylvania to Gurgaon, India.

This is a very provocative book about the education status quo and the likely power of technology to trump it. Chubb and Moe paint an accurate -- and depressing view of the current status of education, which is stymied by special interests. They then contend that technology is ubiquitous and may be the way to break the old mold of education so that today's students are engaged and educated well for our ever-changing world. Highly recommended.

This might be interesting to read if one is curious about the politics of educational reform and why seemingly beneficial technologies can be hard to get adopted.

Quickly gained terms and phrases from the first glimpse:

A descirption of the power of the teachers' unions, especially the NEA
The Politics of Blocking
Charter Schools using modern technology
Media Labs
Cyber Schools
Future Schools
