Reviews and Testimonials

It is time for the educational community to reframe the meaning of education and what it means to be an educated person in the twenty-first century. It seems that what we ideally intend to do is to create a basis for learning how to learn, rather than supply what we assume all learners should learn before (push) they begin the real work of learning. I think the reader will find convincing evidence in these pages!
