Don’t Go Back To School

Kio Stark

My studiomate Kio Stark just launched her latest ebook titled Don’t Go Back to School. Fact is, schools don’t have a monopoly on learning anymore as more people are declining traditional education and college degrees. Instead they’re getting the knowledge, training, and inspiration they need outside of the classroom.

In Don’t Go Back to School Kio draws on extensive research and over 100 interviews with independent learners, and with that offers the ultimate guide to learning without school. The book provides models and methods for taking a new kind of path through learning, and transforming that alternative education into an exciting career path.

Kio provides concrete strategies and resources for getting started as an independent learner. If you’re debating whether college, trade school, or independent learning will get you where you want to be, Don’t Go Back to School is essential reading.

  1. Yes, when you take enough interest, you can learn just about anything. Until your potential employers stop caring about degrees and start thinking about education differently, most of us don’t have a choice.
    My field is Building Structures – I’m a civil engineer – my employers are probably going to take at least a couple of decades to accept this , if they ever do.

  2. I love that the last comment is from a Columbia professor. I assume she has an advanced degree because most universities nowadays won’t hire full-time instructors without them. Yes, a lifetime full of learning is wonderful, but until our economic structure does a complete 180° – degrees still equate to higher pay and better job opportunities. As someone who has always regretted not getting a masters degree, I have to hope people will take her advice with a very large grain of salt.

  3. I feel like this ebook came at the right time in my life. I have to check it out.

  4. lets hope Kio is right. I’m currently studying to enhance my skills (still with an official certificate at the end) without it being part of an official school/university system. I’m sure it won’t be in vein, sometimes I do feel as if employers really look favorable on degrees and not brains.
