  • Creativity, Education and Change
    This book by educator Berenice Bleedorn - Education is Everybody's Business: A Wake-Up Call to Advocates of Educational Change - really makes the case for the deliberate teaching of thinking - creative and critical - in education. It also links the importance of education to a thriving democracy. An idea in the book - that "democracy deserves the best thinking possible" - offers a great way to begin thinking about any number of political issues in the world today.
