Educating for Human

A Higher Vision of Teaching, Thinking and

Dear Friend,

This letter is for all those who feel there
must be a better way to re-form public
education than what we have experienced in
recent years. Our society is plagued with a
mind-set that blocks authentic changes and
prevents the development of a system of
education to meet the needs of students in the
21st Century. Our culture maintains a low
vision of human potential that is reflected in
what we expect of students, their parents and
their teachers. Failure to change this vision
will only result in more of the same Ă¢€“
standardized teaching and learning shackled by
externally imposed restrictions and
characterized by low performing children and
adults. There is evidence that we really donĂ¢€™t
know what people can accomplish until we give
them the right kind of freedom and nurturing. .

To read on, go to the website
and join the discussion.
