Overview

Schools have failed our individual needs, supporting false and misleading notions of 'progress' and development fostered by the belief that ever-increasing production, consumption and profit are proper yardsticks for measuring the quality of human life.

In this bold and provocative book, Illich suggests some radical and exciting reforms for the education system.
