Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor of Linguistics and Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is the author of more than 80 books. He lives in Lexington, Massachusetts.

Donaldo Macedo is professor of English and Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and Education at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. He is the author of many books, including Literacies of Power and the forthcoming Ideology Matters, coauthored with Paulo Freire.
Noam Chomsky’s prolific writings have made him the most cited educators in history—the only living writer on a most-cited list that includes Plato, Shakespeare, and Freud. Yet until now no book has systematically offered Chomsky’s influential writings on education. In this book Noam Chomsky encourages a larger understanding of our educational needs, starting with the changing role of schools today, and broadening our view of new models of public education. A truly democratic society, he argues, cannot thrive in a rapidly changing world unless our approach to education—formal and otherwise—is dramatically reformed. Chomsky’s critique of how our current educational system “miseducates” students—and his prescriptions for change—are essential reading for teachers, parents, school administrators, activists, and anyone concerned about the future.
