Will Richardson cites EDGE researcher Melanie McBride in new book

February 6th, 2013

EDGE researcher Melanie McBride is cited in the prologue of Will Richardson‘s new book, Why School (published by TED Books). From the Amazon description:

In ‘Why School?,’ educator, author, parent and blogger Will Richardson challenges traditional thinking about education — questioning whether it still holds value in its current form. How can schools adjust to this new age? Or students? Or parents? In this provocative read, Richardson provides an in-depth look at how connected educators are beginning to change their classroom practice. Ultimately, ‘Why School?’ serves as a starting point for the important conversations around real school reforms that must ensue, offering a bold plan for rethinking how we teach our kids, and the consequences if we don’t.
