Here, Elaine Johnson examines of the state of education in the twenty-first century using science, rather than business as a more reliable and positive guide for education. The application of scientific principles of interrelatedness, self-organization, and differentiation to leadership and teaching, transforms schools into places that improve school performance. Chapters describe practical approaches to teaching math, science and foreign languages. This book analyzes the influence on education of the business model calling for growth, competition, measurable target, and accountability. It also discusses the effects on young people of immense high schools, charter schools, and statewide standardized achievement tests.
