Noam Chomsky's prolific writings have made him one of the most-quoted educators in history--the only living writer on a most-cited list that includes Plato, Shakespeare, and Freud. Yet until now, no book has systematically offered Chomsky's influential writings on education. In Chomsky on MisEducation, Noam Chomsky encourages a larger understanding of our educational needs, starting with the changing role of schools today, and broadening our view of new models of public education. Chomsky weaves global technological change and the primacy of responsible media with the democratic role of schools and higher education. A truly democratic society, he argues, cannot thrive in a rapidly changing world unless our approach to education--formal and otherwise--is dramatically reformed. Chomsky's critique of how our current educational system "miseducates" students--and his prescriptions for change--are essential reading for teachers, parents, school administrators, activists, and anyone concerned about the future.

Interesting to note that despite the half-star rating of the two comments before me, they are coming from completely different places. StarGladiator is from the Progressive side (citing JFK and FDR), while Zogkarndon is from the Tea Party side (judging from numerous five-star ratings for Tea Party manifestos and Ann Coulter's heaps of trash).

Chomsky is, without a doubt, the least well-read "professor" currently disgracing American universities. He's incapable of accurately quoting others, and 90% of his citations are to his own works.

Why anyone treats him with respect is beyond me.

And yet, somehow Chomsky is unfamiliar with President Kennedy's radical Alliance For Progress, regarding land reform and financial independence and freedom from US imperialism for Latin America? ? ? Something is rotten in Chomsky land, and I believe that word is called INTEGRITY! Reminds me of the great investigative journalist and professor of sociology, Ferdinand Lundberg, and his brilliant and pointed criticism of C. Wright Mills and Mills exclusion and feigned ignorance of the still most important economic study in America, the TNEC study, instigated by FDR. The most important economic study by congress of the concentrated ownership of corporations by a select number of Wall Street banks, leading to the lawsuit [the United States v. Morgan et al.] and yet Mills never mentions this? Always know your fraudsters [Chomsky and C. Wright Mills, the gatekeepers of the status quo].
