According to recent studies in neuroscience, 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 rethink our understanding of intelligence, reevaluate our educational system, and reinvigorate our commitment to learning. In other words, we need "disruptive innovation." Now, in his long-awaited new book, 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 now-famous theories of "disruptive" change using a wide range of real-life examples. Whether you're a school administrator, government official, business leader, parent, teacher, or entrepreneur, you'll discover surprising new ideas, outside-the-box strategies, and straight-A success stories. You'll learn how customized learning will help many more students succeed in school; student-centric classrooms will increase the demand for new technology; computers must be disruptively deployed to every student; disruptive innovation can circumvent roadblocks that have prevented other attempts at school reform. We can compete in the global classroom--and get ahead in the global market.--From publisher description

"The growth of for-profit providers in the K?16 education sector has generated more than its fair share of controversy. From the emergence of charter schools to postsecondary options such as the University of Phoenix, for-profit providers have been lauded for their capacity to serve historically underserved populations but derided for their pursuit of profit?which, critics argue, happens at the expense of the public good."
