I'm reserving the book's pedagogical merits to professionals in the education field.
I first heard about the book on CNBC. Mr. Shymalan was being interviewed on Squawk Box. Both he and the anchors seemed a little to sure of the answers filtering it from a perch of privilege.
Reserved and ready to discount the book I read it in about 10 days. My first and only problem was the complicated data analysis. I am poor in statistics.
However, it's the statistics along with his interviews that makes the book work.
Having a feel for what will close the achievement gap is great until it's application doesn't work.I think that's what the book gets at. Trying things that work for a few is great for the few.
But, having evidenced-based strategies that feel intuitive too and might possibly work in all schools is better.
Mr Shyamalan has a bold conviction and is not afraid to be criticized. Yes, he is only a movie maker and not a educator but give it a read anyway.
Maybe he'll inspire you to think differently. I did.
