A collection of satirical and humorous readings related to education and schooling. The editor contends that perhaps educators, and others, have taken the issues and problems of education too seriously and a satirical and humorous perspective might lighten their task. The readings are categorized according to goals and curriculum; instruction including subcategories on organization, resources, teachers and teaching, learners and learning; evaluation and research; and futures. The editor has provided very little editorial comment, leaving that up to the reader. As noted in the introduction by Will Roy a Professor from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee'...[these essays] aim to deflate pompousness, annoy authority, shake the status quo, empower the little people, bring reality into the Ivory Tower, spur change, and primarily, allow us to take ourselves less seriously.'
