What's So Funny About Education?



May 2003 | 108 pages | Corwin
`Lou Fournier has firmly placed one foot in the pragmatic world of today, while the other points toward a future view of education where teachers and students are treated with respect, and all learners achieve to the best of their abilities. He does this through the medium of humor, and you are in for a genuine treat' - From the Foreword by David D Thornburg, Director Thornburg Center, Illinois

What's So Funny About Education? contains pellets of wisdom and humour on the topic of education. It aims to take a closer look at the situation in education today, to shake them joyously in laughter. The authors have taken on the challenge to cast education's foibles onto a well-lit stage where we can chuckle and chortle while acknowledging the underlying truth, which can be individually addressed in more serious perspectives. This book looks at the world pragmatically, while at the same time, commends a future view of education where teachers and students are treated with respect, and all learners achieve to the best of their abilities.
