Deceiving a Generation PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Deceiving a Generation free pdf Learn to succeed', 'realise your goals', and 'achieve your ambitions'. These are the promises of educational advertising, endorsed by every government. They are a blatant deception. This book uniquely brings together schools, colleges and universities to describe a growing loss of legitimacy at every level of learning that leaves students and apprentices over qualified but underemployed.Instead of enabling upward social mobility, education and training disguises the reality that for most young people, social mobility is downward. As a result, teachers and the taught are running up a down-escalator of impossible targets in what has become a new system of social control. From primary to post-graduate schools pressure is growing for radical alternatives. The author offers challenging but practical solutions.
