it was amazing
Recommended for: Educators, Elected Officials

If you are at all interested or involved in Higher Education I recommend you read this book. If the government and schools were to implement even some of their recommendations I think that it would drastically improve the preparation of students for University.

One of the best points is that we need to remember that it's OK for our students to be "average". And average is the C range, not the B range. Too many schools have their grades clustered in the top third of the spectrum which doesn't actually give students a good idea of how skillful they are at different subjects.
