I’m a big fan of Seth Godin and his on-the-edge ideas. His lastest brainchild is the “Stop Stealing Dreams” manifesto containing posts, provocations and insights into how to change and improve the education system.
If you have a child in school or are employer in search of great talent or someone who cares about the future of our collective learning…this is a must read. You can download the 30,000 word manifesto here.
Worth reading? It was released a week ago and already 100,000 have done so.
Read a short excerpt below.
Column A and Column B
Supportive ——————————————- >
Which column do you pick? Whom do you want to work for or work next to? Whom do you want to hire? Which doctor do you want to treat you? Whom do you want to live with?
Last question: If you were organizing a trillion-dollar, sixteen-year indoctrination program to turn out the next generation of our society, which column would you build it around?
This is more of a rant than a book. It’s written for teenagers, their parents, and their teachers. It’s written for bosses and for those who work for those bosses. And it’s written for anyone who has paid taxes, gone to a school board meeting, applied to college, or voted.
