Required reading for Eckerd College freshmen entering 1975.

A new educator must be centrally concerned with the hearts and minds of learners: teach them how to ask, and answer, questions they find important. That is what learning is for.

Feel like things are going wrong in the world of public education? Want to create a revolution, or at least reform? Want some ideas for how to completely change things in your classroom? This book is a must-read. I read it for the first time almost 10 years ago and re-read it this summer. Amazing how much hasn’t changed. ( )

So sensible it's still radical almost 40 years after publication, this is a provocative read for anyone interested or involved in education. The authors' model stresses the importance of children learning to think for themselves in a wide range of ways, instead of learning material by heart in a vacuum of context and meaning. ( )

Thank God there are no free schools or printing; ... for learning has brought disobedience and heresy into the world, and printing has divulged them. ... God kept us from both. — Sir William Berkeley, Governor of Virginia, d. 1677
