A Pedagogue's Romance PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Pedagogue's Romance free pdf The Indian education system impacts all of us directly or indirectly at various points in our lives. We are often critical and angry, and readily offer solutions that nobody seems willing to implement. In this selection of shorter essays, Krishna Kumar takes us into what he calls the 'inner world of education'. We go inside schools and training institutes, delve into the public examination system and textbooks, to analytically distinguish the system from the concept of education. At the same time, the author alerts us to the wider cultural, economic, and technological factors that influence the system and its key players-the students and teachers. This second edition of A Pedagogue's Romance presents some additional material along with an updated introduction. Full of creative ideas presented in an accessible style and with passion, the volume will attract teachers, decision-makers, activists, guardians, and students.
