The Kindle edition of What Are We Going to Learn Today? is available. I just pushed the publish button so it may actually take a day or so. It will definitely be there by the new year with a special price for those of you who have already bought the paperback edition. Self publishing has been a daunting exercise for this aging brain. We do learn by going where we have to go and I have been way out of my comfort zone. Hopefully, my tales of woe are behind me, at least for this stage of the process. My resolution for the coming year is to learn how to confidently navigate this website and to create informative, engaging blog posts for my readers. Please leave me your comments about the book, about the blog posts, about concerns that you have for your children or students and I will respond. I would much rather be part of a discussion than give a lecture.
I hope this holiday season gives you comfort and courage for the year ahead. We are all being challenged to speak and stand up for our convictions and for our vision of a more sustainable and socially just future. Above all, we must look deeply at the way we are educating children and the values and capacities that they are taking away from their years of schooling. What sort of human beings do we want them to become? What qualities do they need in order to be thoughtful, informed citizens of a democracy? I hope these questions inspire you to read my book and join us in a larger conversation.
