Humanizing the Education Machine. How to Create Schools That Turn Disengaged Kids Into Inspired Learners

A clear roadmap for the new territory of education Education in the U.S. has been under fire for quite some time, and for good reason. The numbers alone tell a very disconcerting story: according to various polls, 70% of teachers are disengaged. Add to that the fact that the United States ranks last among industrialized nations for college graduation levels, and it's evident there's a huge problem that needs to be addressed. Yet the current education system and its school buildings—with teachers standing in front of classrooms and lecturing to students—have gone largely unchanged since the 19th century. Humanizing the Education Machine tackles this tough issue head-on. It describes how the education system has become ineffective by not adapting to fit students'needs, learning styles, perspectives, and lives at home. This book explains how schools can evolve to engage students and involve parents. It serves to spread hope for reform and equip parents, educators, administrators, and communities to: Analyze the pitfalls of the current U.S. education system Intelligently argue the need to reform the current landscape of education Work to make a difference in the public education system Be an informed advocate for your child or local school system If you're a concerned parent or professional looking for a trusted resource on the need for education reform, look no further than Humanizing the Education Machine. This illuminating resource provides the information you need to become a full partner in the new human-centered learning revolution.

Rex Miller, born Rex Miller Spangberg, (April 25, 1939 - May 21, 2004) wrote novels detailing the investigations of Jack Eichord, a fictional homicide detective who specialized in tracking down serial killers. "Slob", the first novel of the series, introduced Daniel Bunkowski, a half-ton, killing-machine serial killer. For this novel Rex miller was nominated for the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel. Other books in the series include "Frenzy", "Slice", "Savant", and "Stone Shadow".

Spangberg also wrote "Profane Men", a novel set during the Vietnam War, in addition to the limited-edition novel "St. Louis Blues". Spangberg resurrected Daniel Bunkowski for three novels, "Chaingang", "Savant", and "Butcher", that take place outside of the continuity of the Eichord series.

Rex Miller Spangberg was also a popular disc jockey in the 1960's, and was considered an expert in the field of juvenile-related collectibles, particularly old time radio premiums. Spangberg died in Sikeston, Missouri on May 21, 2004.
