Summary
What is the purpose of education? What kind of people do we want our children to grow up to be? How can we design schools so that students will acquire the skills they ll need to live fulfilled and productive lives? These are just a few of the questions that renowned educator Dennis Littky explores in The Big Picture: Education is Everyone's Business, the culmination of more than 30 years of rethinking education and inspiring others to commit their lives to serving children. The schools Littky has created and led are models for reformers throughout the country: small, public schools where the curriculum is meaningful, student progress is measured against real-world standards, and families and communities are actively engaged. This book is for both big E and small e educators: Here, you'll find a moving account of just what is possible in education, with many of the examples drawn from the Metropolitan Regional Career and Technical Center (The Met) in Providence, Rhode Island a racially diverse public high school that leads the state in measures of positive school environment and college acceptance rates and exemplifies Littky's philosophy of personalized learning, one student at a time. The Big Picture is a book to reenergize educators, inspire teachers-in-training, and start a new conversation about kids and schools and what we want for both
