Product reviews for Curriculum

Paul W. Bennett, Director, Schoolhouse Institute, Founding Chair, researchED Canada, and author of ten books on Canadian history and education
In Curriculum, Martin Robinson tackles the central educational issue of our time: the contest between Athena (the goddess of wisdom) and the Machine (mechanical thinking and the quantification of learning). He reminds us, however, that the beating heart of the school lies in its curriculum, and assures us that there is still hope for -˜bringing the human back' into education.

Written with Martin's customary elegance, wit and intelligence, Curriculum is an inspirational contemporary hymn to the teacher, warning us off settling for the click of the Machine when Athena beckons us to rediscover an education that gives meaning to life. It's destined to be one of the must-read books in the field.
