About the book:

Leaving School: Finding Education comprehensively explains how American schools have failed to make the transition to the new technological age of the 21st Century. As America enters this new millennium, parents, educators and even politicians are seeking a way out of the fiscal burdens and performance failures that characterize Americas schools.

Leaving School: Finding Education proposes a "per child" funding pattern and the use of vouchers to induce change in education. A scenario is provided to illustrate how e-learning could replace the traditional schooling experience. Learning portals for all Americans are proposed and real examples from existing Internet resources are provided. The entry of business into truly functional education is portrayed.

Leaving School: Finding Education is a candid account of a national scandal; one that is unfolding daily in districts throughout the United States. This book is unique in proposing to reform education by leaving the outdated places we call schools. The ideas discussed promise to be invigorating to readers on both side of the political aisle. This "must read" will be a breath of fresh air for those who are frustrated with schools and yet hopeful about education!
