School is Dead has 33 ratings and 2 reviews. Eric said: This book presents more cogently and in greater detail the argument Ivan Illich made in Deschool. Everett Reimer has done too many things to mention in full: he has sold maps about education and school and, eventually, about alternatives to Schools. This is one of my favorite books on alternative education because it rang true with what I saw happening in the future. In this book he proposed.

This book presents more cogently and in greater detail the argument Ivan Illich made in “Deschooling Society”: School undergirds the totalitarian tendencies inherent in global capitalism by socializing us to think of learning as a packageable commodity, and by disguising the fallacy underlying capitalism: School perpetuates social class hierarchies by reproducing the class structure, while claiming to be an engine of deax.
School makes learning a scar This book presents more cogently and in greater detail the argument Ivan Illich made in “Deschooling Society”: School makes learning iss scarce commodity by a whole series of inefficiencies which parallel the inefficiencies of industrial capitalism.
Furthermore, by its attaching learning to grades and certificates, it heightens the illusion of scarcity in knowledge and learning.
School absorbs more and more resources, mirroring the infinite appetite of capitalism. It is not possible to educate everyone up to even the current level deemed adequate; anyway, as soon as that level is approached, “competition” bids up the eerett level of “necessary” schooling. The affluent always manage this minimum, the poorest never can, with few –always celebrated!
That’s all I can cram into this space, but there’s lots more! Alternatives to the entire school nexus are outlined.
