As society has changed over the last century, the need for change in education methodology is ever increasing, if schooling is to be a pleasure rather than an endurable experience. The author questions the reasons behind the pervasive focus on "facts" and suggests that exam oriented learning trivializes the importance of the process of education in its entirety. This book is intended to help educators to understand that well-intentioned plans may have gone awry, and puts forward an agenda for changing schooling practices away from now rejected theories of learning - that is, theories which advocated isolated drill work and the automatic presentation and memorization of information - to a more recent belief in learning occurring when individuals are engaged in purposeful, collaborative tasks.
