The One World School House: Education Reimagined by Salman Khan

In a world where our children are bored, unchallenged, under motivated, The One World School House offers some ideas that may change how we approach education.National and international rankings alone should alert us to how deficient our system currently is. Khan enthusiastically encourages students to become more involved in their educational process. He encourages us to take a healthy look at the minimum standards established within our current model. Mr. Khan actively seeks creating a learning environment that encourages creativity where mistakes are allowed and where the possibility of failure can be embraced. Our educational system should have more of our American entrepreneurial and innovative spirit that we are so famous for internationally. This book presents a serious look at where our educational system is and what a better, more improved system can offer. It is a great book for reflection and eager, earnest discussion.
