When it comes to our modern education system, school reigns supreme. Public education is touted as a foundational component of equity in our country. Meanwhile, many affluent parents pay for private school, following the simple logic that the more you invest in school, the better the education your child will receive. But what if the conventional wisdom is all wrong? After all, there's little evidence to support it. What if your teenager is right? What if school does suck? Written by one of the best SAT tutors in the country, School Sucks, Your Child Doesn't gives it to you straight: most children, especially the brilliant ones, come out of school a far cry from their potential as learners. And it's not their fault. Ian Siegel's controversial work makes a study of how school's efforts to help us learn have completely backfired, causing bright, capable people to get the wrong idea about learning, resulting in frightening consequences for individual students and society at large. Ian explores these realities and distills a practice he's crafted to unlock the brilliance in the students he's worked with--for parents to use with their own children. Learn from Ian's 15k+ hours of tutoring at the highest levels and implement a new philosophy and practice with your child that will unlock their untapped potential for life.
