Discussion on Mark Edmundson’s book of essays WHY TEACH? In Defense of a Real Education have been constant on the blogosphere and facebook news feeds this week. In the book, Edmundson points to education and the wide chasm between the power strong teachers have to make students rethink who they are and whom they might become and the current conditions under which education takes place today. Please enjoy this read-I hope it inspires you to enter your fall 13 classroom prepared to shake things up. Enjoy the last remaining days of summer, I will return in September!
