Twelve-term Texas Congressman, Presidential candidate, and #1 New York Times bestselling author Ron Paul returns with a highly provocative treatise about how we need to fundamentally change the way we think about America's broken education system in order to fix it. Whether or not you have children, you know that education is vital to the prosperity and future of our society. Yet our current system simply doesn't work. Parents feel increasingly powerless, and nearly half of Americans give our schools a grade of "C". Now, in his new book, Ron Paul attacks the problem head-on and provides a focused solution that centers on strong support for home schooling and the application of free market principles to the American education system. Examining the history of education in this country, Dr. Paul identifies where we've gone wrong, what we can do about it, and how we can change the way we think about education in order to provide a brighter future for Americans.

There is no more important issue facing education, or humanity at large, than the fast approaching revolution in Artificial Intelligence or AI. This book is a call to educators everywhere to open their eyes to what is coming. If we do so, then the future will be shaped by us in the interests of humanity as a whole - but if we don't, it will be imposed by others. Britain and the US have an excellent education system in their schools and universities - excellent, but tailored to the twentieth century. The factory mass teaching methods of the third revolution era have failed to conquer enduring problems of inequity and unfairness. Students have to make progress at a set rate which demotivates some and bores others. And for all the new technologies, teachers remain weighed down by routine administration and only a narrow range of our aptitudes are encouraged. Will the fourth AI revolution be able to remedy these problems? We have allowed ourselves to believe that teaching can uniquely be done only by the teacher, but might it in fact be better carried out by AI machines? Or at least in concert with teachers? The evolution of AI, still in its infancy, raises a range of issues of enormous importance as we grapple with how we as humans will interact with it. AI will be an altogether new way of spreading quality education across the world, especially to those hundreds of millions who do not have it. And coming it is - the final part of the book stresses that we have to embrace AI and ensure that we shape it to the best advantage of humanity. If we get it wrong, there may be no second opportunity. The conclusion... Nothing matters more than education if we are to see AI liberate not infantilise humanity.

Superspy middle schooler Ben Ripley faces the Croatoan—a new evil organization that’s so mysterious, the only proof it exists is from the American Revolution—in this latest addition to the New York Times bestselling Spy School series. With SPYDER defeated, Ben Ripley is looking forward to his life getting back to normal, or as normal as possible when you’re a superspy in training. For once, everything seems to be right in Ben’s world...until someone bombs the CIA conference room next door. To Ben’s astonishment, the attacker is none other than Erica Hale, the spy-in-training he respects more than any other. Ben refuses to believe Erica is working for the enemy...even if the rest of the CIA does. His mission: prove Erica is not a double agent working against the US, locate the fabled colonial-era insurgent group that’s blackmailing her, figure out what their devious plot is, and thwart it. But this time, Ben finds himself up against opponents he has never encountered before: his own friends. They’re not as ready to trust in Erica as he is, and Ben is forced to rely on his own wits and skills more than ever before. How can he succeed when he doesn’t even know who he can trust?

Australia s Education Revolution

This collection of opinion pieces, primarily taken from The Australian newspaper, traces the rise and fall of Rudd's education revolution and provides a detailed account of Australia's education wars.

During the lead up to the 2007 federal election, Kevin Rudd's promise of an education revolution was centre stage and a vote winner for the ALP opposition. Copying the Howard Government's education agenda, Rudd promised a back to basics approach to the curriculum, schools and teachers being held accountable for performance and continued funding to non-government schools. Whether a national curriculum, national testing, national teacher registration, holding schools accountable or merit-based pay for teachers, the reality is that state and territory schools are being radically transformed. Is Rudd's education revolution successful and will standards improve? Based on the last 12 months the answer is 'no'. The cost of the computer program has blown out be millions, the waste and mismanagement of the school infrastructure program is being investigated by the Auditor-General and schools are losing their independence and being micro-managed by Canberra. The very changes needed to raise standards, like school vouchers where the money follows the child and more parents can choose non-government schools and giving schools the autonomy and flexibility to get on with the job, are denied and the danger is that nothing will improve. This collection of opinion pieces, primarily taken from The Australian newspaper, traces the rise and fall of Rudd's education revolution and provides a detailed account of Australia's education wars. Issues include, school accountability and league tables, teacher merit pay, why Catholic and independent schools should be funded by government, why standards have fallen and the impact of Australia's dumbed down and politically correct curriculum. Dr Donnelly also details what needs to be done to have a real education revolution, including how to strengthen government schools.

The Greenfield School Revolution and School Choice National Research

This study uses descriptive data from the U.S. Department of Education to examine the composition of the private school sector in localities with sizeable school choice programs. If existing school choice programs are attracting educational entrepreneurs and unlocking the potential of new school models, the authors should expect to see significant changes in the sector's composition. While the available data do not allow the authors to examine every aspect of schooling, the founding of new school models ought to produce visible changes in school types, school sizes, and other visible metrics. However, the data examined here provide little evidence that existing school choice programs are transforming the structure of private schools. In its current form, school choice does not appear to be having an impact that is sufficiently large enough to produce visible transformation of the private school sector. Existing choice programs transfer students from marginally less effective public schools to marginally more effective private schools, but they do not seem to drive more ambitious school reforms. It appears that universal choice programs are needed before an alliance between school choice and the greenfield school revolution can emerge. (Contains 9 figures, 9 tables, and 23 notes.).

In the February revolution of 1848, French students and their allies from the Latin Quarter stirred a peaceful crowd at the Madeleine into a turbulent mob marching on the Chamber of Deputies. Students constructed, manned, and even commanded barricades throughout Paris while medical students cared for the wounded of both sides. John G. Gallaher is the first historian to analyze the crucial role played by these students in the revolution that deposed Louis Philippe and created the Second Republic. He looks at conditions in the academic community on the eve of the revolution. He then traces the role played by students during the course of the revolution and the days after. Finally he explains why the students who sup­ported the revolution in February turned against the workers and artisans of Paris when the barricades were raised again in June. In spite of a tradition of revolu­tion, these students favored moderate reform, not political and social upheaval.

Filled with anecdotes, observations, and recommendations from professionals on the front line of transformative education, case histories, and groundbreaking research, Creative Schools aims to inspire teachers, parents, and policy makers alike to rethink the real nature and purpose of education.
