Education. Nonfiction. HTML:A no-holds-barred assault on outdated teaching methods??with dramatic and practical proposals on how education can be made relevant to today's world.
Praise for Teaching As a Subversive Activity
??A healthy dose of Postman and Weingartner is a good thing: if they make even a dent in the pious . . . American classroom, the book will be worthwhile.???New York Times Book Review
 
??Teaching and knowledge are subversive in that they necessarily substitute awareness for guesswork, and knowledge for experience. Experience is no use in the world of Apollo 8. It is simply necessary to know. However, it is also necessary to know the effect of Apollo 8 in creating a new Global Theatre in which student and teacher alike are looking for roles. Postman and Weingartner make excellent theatrical producers in the new Global Theatre.???Marshall McLuhan
 
??It will take courage to read this book . . . but those who are asking honest questions??what??s wrong with the worlds in which we live, how do we build communication bridges cross the Generation Gap, what do they want from us???these people will squirm in the discovery that the answers are really within themselves.???Saturday Review
 
??Neil Postman and Charles Weingartner go beyond the now-familiar indictments of American education to propose basic ways of liberating both teachers and students from becoming personnel rather than people . . . the authors have created what may become a primer of ??the new education?? Their book is intended for anyone, teacher or not, who is concerned with sanity and survival in a world of precipitously rapid change, and it??s worth your reading.???Playboy
 
??This challenging, liberating book can unlock not only teachers but anyone for whom

A dud. Postman matured immensely between 1969 when this book was published and 1985, when "Amusing Ourselves to Death" was published. Even in 1967 he could still write a few isolated good paragraphs, though. A later book, "The End of Education", published in the '90s, is far more a typical Postman book.

Whoops! This book made me think about how I ought to have taught the last time I was employed to teach, so it wasn't a dead loss. ( )

Postman takes aim at education, proving that education has been terrible since the 60s and, from my experience, has possibly gotten worse. I wish I was still teaching so that I could implement his theories. Though the administrative authorities and boards would dislike it because it might make their jobs irrelevant. ( )

As a recruiting book, this does have the snappy title for the late 1960's. And, so far as i remember it...it does explain what does happen, for good or ill, in classrooms. ( )

A new educator must be centrally concerned with the hearts and minds of learners: teach them how to ask, and answer, questions they find important. That is what learning is for.

Feel like things are going wrong in the world of public education? Want to create a revolution, or at least reform? Want some ideas for how to completely change things in your classroom? This book is a must-read. I read it for the first time almost 10 years ago and re-read it this summer. Amazing how much hasn’t changed. ( )

Thank God there are no free schools or printing; ... for learning has brought disobedience and heresy into the world, and printing has divulged them. ... God kept us from both. — Sir William Berkeley, Governor of Virginia, d. 1677
