Postman suggests that the current crisis in our educational system derives from its failure to supply students with a translucent, unifying " narrative" like those that inspired earlier generations. Instead, today's schools promote the false " gods" of economic utility, consumerism, or ethnic separatism and resentment. What alternative strategies can we use to instill our children with a sense of global citizenship, healthy intellectual skepticism, respect of America's traditions, and appreciation of its diversity? In answering this question, The End of Education restores meaning and common sense to the arena in which they are most urgently needed. ^^" Informal and clear...Postman's ideas about education are appealingly fresh." --New York Times Book Review
