Praise for Liberating Learning

"Moe and Chubb have delivered a truly stunning book, rich withthe prospect of how technology is already revolutionizing learningin communities from Midland, Pennsylvania to Gurgaon, India. At thesame time, this is a sobering telling of the realpolitik ofeducation, a battle in which the status quo is well defended. Butmost of all, this book is a call to action, a call to unleash thepower of technological innovation to create an education systemworthy of our aspirations and our childrens' dreams." —TedMitchell, CEO of the New Schools Venture Fund

"As long as we continue to educate students without regard forthe way the real world works, we will continue to limit theirchoices. In Liberating Learning, Terry Moe and John Chubb push usto ask the questions we should be asking, to have the hardconversations about how far technology can go to advance studentachievement in this country." —Michelle Rhee, Chancellor ofEducation for the Washington, D.C. schools

"A brilliant analysis of how technology is destined to transformAmerica's schools for the better: not simply by generating new waysof learning, but also—and surprisingly—by unleashingforces that weaken its political opponents and open up thepolitical process to educational change. A provocative, entirelynovel vision of the future of American education." —RickHanushek, the Paul and Jean Hanna Senior Fellow at the HooverInstitution, Stanford University

"Terry Moe and John Chubb, two long-time, astute observers ofeducational reform, see technology as the way to reverse decades offailed efforts. Technology will facilitate significantly moreindividualized student learning—and perhaps most importantly,technology will make it harder and harder for the entrenched adultinterests to block the reforms that are right for our kids. This isa provocative, informative and, ultimately, optimistic read,something we badly need in public education." —Joel Klein,Chancellor of the New York City schools
