Clap If You Can Hear Me: The Secret Attention Deficits of Education That Prevent Generational Wealth & Prosperity in America by Kelly Mitchell is a book that can only be written by an expert educator and pedagogue and someone with a deep understanding of the flaws in today’s educational systems. The author answers the questions: How relevant are our educational structure and tools to the challenges of our time? Is our education designed to equip students for real life and do students receive the right resources required when the time comes to join the workforce? The answers to these questions are found in the book and the author uncovers those gaps that make preparedness for life almost non-existent in our systems of education and proposes ways to rectify them. This book proposes a methodology that will enable educators to provide students with life skills and the experience required for employment after graduation.
This book is well-researched and beautifully written. Each chapter handles a specific topic and in a skillful manner, uncovering information, tips, and insights that bring clarity to what good education should look like. Kelly Mitchell discusses the role of the family in education and human formation, the best approach to history and religion, what to focus on in the senior year and the place of hands-on learning experience and entrepreneurship, and a lot more. Clap If You Can Hear Me is a book not only for educators but also students looking for the best resources and tools when determining how to go about their education. It is no wonder that most of what comes in handy when we face life is what we never learned in school and the author shows that what readers absolutely need can be available to them. This is a book that calls for educational reforms, a voice that must be listened to, a light that will lead readers beyond mediocrity into paths of success in business and in life.
