Title: What's the Point of School? Subtitle: How the current education system is failing to prepare students for the real world
Biografía del autor
I am currently a 4th Year Biochemistry student at University. I have interests in Forensic Science and Criminology. I am a driven individual who is passionate about reaching my self-set goals in life, whether that's solving a (hypothetical) crime or self-publishing this book.
Descripción del libro
Short Description: What's the Point of School is a book which aims to enlighten students (and parents) about the flaws in the current education system in the UK, which I believe is too outdated to prepare students for the 21st Century and therefore requires reform.
Público al que se apunta
The book is primarily aimed at students (aged 16 - 25) in the UK. I believe that the book could also be aimed at parents in the UK, especially those with children who are worried about their future.

What's the Point of School is a book that contains a much-needed deeper look at the current UK school curriculum and contains key points for the major subjects covered in school (Maths, English, Sport, History, Geography, Sciences and Economics) that point out limitations in the way that they are currently taught and how students are not prepared for life outside of school when they leave. The goal of the book cover is to stand out on the Amazon platform as a small thumbnail. The most important aspect of the design is that it sells, not that it looks very artistic or well-designed. It should 'pop-off-the-shelf' and catch the eye quickly. I am open to any illustration or image that you choose that you believe fits this criteria. Here are a few words/phrases that come to mind when thinking of the cover: growth, passion, escape, motivation, being inquisitive, success, forging a new path and even the CharliXCX song 'I don't want to go to school, I just want to break the rules!' In this ways, perhaps an image of a teacher shaking their head/hand (by a school) as students walk out/away could be a potential design. Ideally, the imagery should make the viewer feel that the book is NOT an academic textbook in its content and yet is just as important and necessary for students to have to progress/succeed in life. The reader should feel as though they must have this book if they are having any doubts about what they were taught in school or what to do once they leave, i.e: how school hasn't prepared them for their future. I like bold titles that you can immediately read and know what it means, with simple colour schemes: 2 - 4 colours. Books with covers that I like: The Tangled Mind by Nick Kolenda Sapiens/Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari The Secret Barrister Never Split the Difference - Chris Voss
Lo que debe evitarse
As mentioned above, though the book is aimed at students (and parents) it should look very different to any books normally found at school i.e: academic textbooks (even acting as a stark contrast to them if possible?). Plus I would like the cover to not be too complicated/cluttered in design or put off any potential readers by being too 'out there'.
