Suggested Reading (for parents who are sending their children to college)
Choosing the right school for your children can be a tough choice to say the least. Would-be students and parents must be very critical of not only the schools they are considering but also they must be realistic about the future. Will your education in fact help you get that dream job? Is it enough to realistically sustain you for a life time, is it really a career worthy investment? Here you will find some interesting views both pro and con concerning the many pitfalls of education. I draw heavily from these books and publications in my seminar series on education. *(take me to the seminar section) So read on people!
Listed here are some highly recommended books that look at education in different ways. Most of the books featured here are from authors I feel offer a realistic view of education today and are courageous enough to speak their mind.
