Описание на книгата Откъс от книгата За автора

The Beautiful Tree is not a comfortable book. It questions any number of orthodoxies and stereotypes, with a bracing willingness to confront conventional assumptions. But at the same time it is a beautiful book—alive to the grace of people, and their desire for a better life, a better future and a better education.
Written by James Tooley and based on his own research, The Beautiful Tree tells the story of private education among the world's poor—not mission schools for the rich, or government schools, but co-operative, community schools. These schools are not run for the poor by a government department, but are accountable to, and paid for, by the poor themselves.

Named after Mahatma Gandhi's phrase for the schools of pre-colonial India, The Beautiful Tree is not another book lamenting what has gone wrong in the Third World. It is a book about what is going right, illustrating that even the most disadvantaged parents in the poorest corners of the globe have the power to create tremendous educational experiences for their children.
