An Education in Solutions-Thinking

Sep 09, 2015, 10:34 AM

Zoe Weil makes the bold claim that if every child succeeded in our current educational system in the United States, we would still be stuck with the greatest problems facing humanity today. We need an education that re-imagines our human potential for creating solutions. We need to ask ourselves: What are our best qualities as people and how do we use those as a basis for education to support building the world that works for everyone? Imagine now children educated in that kind of a system going into the world–even during their school years. A systems thinker and pioneer in the humane education movement, Weil joins the show to discuss what Humane Education has to do with nonviolence. #nonviolence #education #peace
