Overview

What is wrong with education? Why do educational reforms always miss their target? How can we create a better education system? And what can we learn from other countries?

Reclaiming Education tackles the challenges facing education that really matter - hte ones that academics often ignore, parents demand solution to and politicians need to confront. Drawing on his global research, James Tooley shows that there is an alternative to poor quality and wasteful inefficiency in education, and that education can be radically transformed to guarantee freedom and higher standards.

"Tooley radically challenges any complacency we may have about education in the 21st century." Sir Bob Salisbury

"Tooley is an extremist: some of his ideas are outrageous!" Professor Geoffrey Walford, University of Oxford

"This is truly a radical book. It should be read by everyone who thinks deeply about education." Sir Christopher Ball
