Read full description of the books:
Illich questions the basic assumption that most liberal (or for that matter non-liberal) people in the US have: more educational = more gooder. Attacking the idea that compulsory schooling is constructive, Illich offers one of the more radical analyses of the educational system I've ever heard of of, much less read. What, after all, is the relation between schooling and learning, if any?
As someone who has spent a huge portion (like one over one) of their life in school and now teaches at a university, I found this book seriously compelling. You might not swallow Deschooling wholesale, but Illich shines the light on so many of the unspoken (I know I'm mixing metaphors here) axioms of the educational system---always a healthy endeavor---and challenges us to either defend or discard.
