Bold and colored text by Brunardot

Book Jacket: Noam Chomsky's prolific writings have made him one of the most quoted educators in history – the only living writer on a most-cited list that includes Plato, Shakespeare, and Freud.

A truly democratic society, (Chomsky) argues, cannot thrive in a rapidly changing world unless our approach to education – formal and otherwise – is dramatically reformed.

…our current educational systems “miseducates” students – and his prescriptions for change – are essential reading for teachers, parents, school administrators, activists, and everyone concerned about the future.

Chomsky: MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)...falls under an institutional role of avoiding a good part of the truth about the world or about society. Otherwise, it couldn't survive very long if it taught the truth.

Chomsky: The more there is a need to talk about the ideals of democracy, the less democratic the system usually is.
