Book Description

The way we learn doesn’t always match up with the way we are taught. If we hope to stay competitive– academically, economically, and technologically–we need to reevaluate our educational system, rethink our approach to learning, and reinvigorate our commitment to learning. In other words, we need disruptive innovation.

Clayton M. Christensen and coauthors Michael B. Horn and Curtis W. Johnson take one of the most important issues of our time – education – and apply Christensen’s theories of disruptive change to K-12 public schooling, using a wide range of real-life examples. Whether you’re a teacher, school administrator, government official, business leader, parent, or entrepreneur, you’ll discover compelling new ideas, successful outside-the-box strategies, and straight-A success stories.

Featured Review

"After a barrage of business books that purport to 'fix' American education, at last a book that speaks thoughtfully and imaginatively about what genuinely individualized education can be like and how to bring it about."
