Good Reading

Almost everyone will admit to being in favor of improving education, but who better to make practical suggestions than Jacques Barzun, whose professional life has been devoted to teaching and learning. A recognized authority, he has lectured and written on improving education for at least five decades. This is one of his several works on the subject, with the title ?Begin Here? used to indicate returning to the basic principles on which schools were founded as the rational, common sense foundation for improving education. The case he makes for better teaching and learning is lucid, and as typical of Barzun, extremely well written. Several of his articles and lectures relevant to the subject matter have been selected for this work to make up a coherent whole. His analysis and suggestions are practical and remain applicable to education as it exists today. Parents and even students, not only teachers and academic administrators will find much of value in this work. After reading it for the first time, one wants to read it again to learn more.
