It’s Monday, February 8. What Are You Reading?

I’m finishing up Schools on Trial by Nikhil Goyal and enjoying it so far, in a selfish way. We homeschool, and lean heavily toward unschooling, so obviously a lot of the philosophy resonates with me. But I have yet to see (in this book, or in any book on the same topic) solid suggestions as to how these ideas could be implemented in a public education setting. We’ll see if this one surprises me.

I also just started reading The Judas Dilemma by Robert Heath, a local self-published author. My book club chose this for our February discussion. It’s definitely outside my comfort zone (crime fiction, legal thriller) but I’m going in with an open mind and will give it a try.

What are you reading?

  • That was going to be my question! My son is in public school and there are things that I like and things that I am less fond of. I find books that talk about school problems without posing solutions incredibly frustrating!

    • It really is. It’s not like most people don’t KNOW what the problem is… I don’t think? But what to do about it, that’s the biggie.

  • I was just reading Shannon’s post on Schools on Trial, and I saw mention of this book come through your Edelweiss feed. I am envious of your homeschooling. I’ll just leave that here. 🙂

    • I was just telling Shannon I SO want to read her review right now, but I’m making myself wait until I’m finished with this and have my own thoughts down on paper (err in WordPress haha).
